Jacket Juice

by Jesse Brown

Although many of Jesse Brown's piano pieces are in the neo-classical realm of Nils Frahm and Joep Beving, 'Jacket Juice' gives us a glimpse into the Jazz and blues influences of Ray Charles and Oscar Peterson.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jesse Brown is a Canadian pianist, composer, and teacher with more than two decades of experience composing and performing music.

20 years ago, Jesse Brown was playing his Fender Rhodes piano on the sidewalk for change and nookie. A nice woman came along and cleaned him up and fed him nutritious food and introduced him to coffee. She has since bore him two sons and threatened to make him get a real job in construction or something if he didn't get his act together. Since then, Jesse has released a number of well reviewed recordings and books, but still had to do some constructing on the side.

With two full length, self-produced solo piano albums — December and Heartwork— as well as his newest EP's - Trilogy and Still, as well as numerous pieces published through Debra Wanless Music publishing, Jesse has proven he can compose just as well as he can perform. His celebrated studio recordings have been recorded independently and mastered by longtime friend Trevor Case at Case Mastering. His transcriptions and compositions have been approved for use in the Conservatory Canada and the Canadian National Conservatory of Music’s examinations. Most recently, Jesse has published a three-volume collection of music books called Brown’s Notes that were written for the intermediate to early advanced pianist.

In the US, Jesse has recently become a Whisperings Solo Piano Radio artist as well as an Enlightened Piano Radio artist with music from both of his solo piano albums and two EP's having been added to their rotation. Kathy Parsons, piano aficionado and owner of Mainly Piano has given all of Jesse’s books, albums, and EP's 5-star reviews.

"I don’t know how I missed December when it was first released, but it’s never too late to share a wonderful new discovery!...I give it my highest recommendation!"- Kathy Parsons - mainlypiano.com

" From the artwork, to the composing, to the playing, to the recording itself, Jesse has created a timeless masterpiece that deserves to be enjoyed for years to come. Five stars." - Heartwork Review - Donovan Johnson - Enlightened Piano Radio

"Heartwork is an exceptionally good album from the first note to the last...very highly recommended!" - Kathy Parsons - mainlypiano.com

"Trilogy is a very pleasant surprise and demonstrates a different side of Brown’s musical personae." - Kathy Parsons - mainlypiano.com

"Floating is a beautiful, dreamy gem by Canadian pianist Jesse Brown...One moment you are dreaming about having tea with Yann Tiersen, the next moment you realize that your toddler is asleep and it's time to tip-toe out of the room." - beautifulsongoftheweek.com

Kathy Parsons

From MainlyPiano
“Jacket Juice” is a single solo piano recording from Canadian pianist/composer Jesse Brown. Composed in a bluesy/swing/ragtime style, this piece is a total charmer that Brown will soon release as sheet music, too. I asked Jesse where the title came from and he explained it this way: “‘Jacket Juice’ was written for my youngest son who was coming home from school with a growing raspberry on his chin a few years back. After a few days, we learned that he was sucking on his Jacket flap to and from school. When I asked him to stop for the sake of his ailing chin, he almost started crying, looked up at me and said… ‘but Daddy! I like the Juice!’”

Brown has been doing most of his recent recordings on a slightly modified or prepared piano that is a bit muted and allows the inner workings of the piano to be heard in addition to the musical sounds. This gives his recordings a unique sound that works especially well with pieces that are somewhat whimsical, as this one is. So, if your day needs a little brightening or you just want some feel-good music, “Jacket Juice” is great stuff!!!
