ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Roselyn Brown
Multi-instrumentalist, Vocalist and Songwriter.

Born of an artistic family, Roselyn started her musical studies at a very tender age. Formal lessons on the piano filled many of her childhood years. Middle school, high school and later years provided unique opportunities to learn and play several woodwind instruments, including the flute, clarinet, alto and soprano saxophones. With high school graduation and years of continued classical training, the genuine desire to excel in musical performance flourished.

Winning 1st place competitive honours, performance scholarships and bursaries allowed Roselyn to continue pursuit of her musical career in the midst of other higher academic studies. Classical performances, Big Band Convention Circuit and Jazz Club appearances helped to ground Roselyn in the ways of the music business.

After many years working with top notch musicians on the Toronto Jazz scene, Roselyn decided it was time to pursue her own solo Jazz career focussing on the key elements of rhythm, melody and ‘smooth’. With these in mind, the journey towards completion of her debut solo CD was begun.

Spring 2008 has seen the release by Roselyn Brown of EMANCIPATION; a triumphant accomplishment; a musical journey reflecting the many joys and challenges of artistic life.

Experience the soulful playing of this multi-talented instrumentalist, vocalist and songwriter. Be drawn into her powerful musical universe with musical performances that lift the spirit and energize the soul.

Produced by Award winning record producer Brandon Grady Pitts, recorded in Toronto Ontario and mastered in Seattle Washington, this CD offers a glimpse of the many talents of Roselyn Brown supported by local and international musicians. EMANCIPATION is receiving airplay on local and internet radio stations.

Radio and Media Feedback

Feedback: Love this disc it is very popular with listeners.

Feedback: Roselyn Brown's CD is excellent. She is a talented flautist. I particularly liked her version of the classic Summertime. It's one of the best I have heard. I introduced her to my Early A.M. Attitude program 2 weeks ago and I will continue to play the CD in the coming weeks. The CD is well produced and the artwork also appeals. I hope she keeps producing fine music like this. My program is available on line.....

Feedback: Featured some of the albums tracks during my 10am to 1pm show, and received great feedback from listeners. I myself found it a very good album to listen to - will be featuring more tracks from this album.

Feedback: Fantastic Album. Great stuff for our Radio Station.

CD Reviews: Roselyn Brown “Emancipation “
September 26, 2008

Reviewed by Edward Blanco

Roselyn Brown is one very talented lady so much so that it’s tough to categorize her as an artist because she performs on so many instruments that it is perhaps better to refer to her as a multi-instrumentalist who can also sing. Emancipation reveals the depth of her skills where she crafts an album of originals, covers and one oft heard classic into a primarily smooth jazz recording.

While Brown enlists the help of many musicians for this project with different players performing on different tracks, it is Brown who dominates the album with pronounced play on a host of instruments. Brown is her own reed section playing the soprano and alto saxophones as well as the flute while also participating on the rhythm side performing on the piano and keyboards.

The music is quite varied beginning with a pick up version of George and Ira Gershwin’s standard “Summertime” followed by a Latin Jazz original “Street Dance” ( misspelled “Dane”) in the liner note, which features the lady on flute and keyboards. On “The Siren” Brown is everywhere contributing fine vocals along with bits on flute, soprano and alto saxophone. The tune “Clocks,” a light and beautiful melody, brings the music squarely within the smooth jazz texture of the album while “Bolero” sounds a bit like Indian or world music featuring Brandon Pitts on the sitar, keyboards, Djembe and Tabla.

Playing with a trio of Pitts on drums and Andre Berry on bass, the music slows down on the dark “Intertwined” where Brown is heard on haunting vocals. The following “Interlude” seems a continuation of the later and the album closes with an extended rendition of the earlier “The Siren.” Not quite a one woman show but certainly half way there, Roselyn Brown is an impressive multi-instrumental talent as evident from her musicianship on this recording. Emancipation is not your standard smooth jazz album for it does include a taste of different genres that blend in quite nicely for one very enticing session of music.

SmoothJazz.com Review
Usually when one uses the term “multi-instrumentalist,” it describes a musician who is proficient on a couple of instruments, but in the case of Roselyn Brown, the emphasis really is on MULTI (including vocals). Childhood piano lessons progressed to woodwind instruments, with a concentration on the flute. As her studies progressed, she realized that music was going to be her career and decided to include saxophone. The multi-instrumentalist AND multi-talented Ms. Brown spent years on the Toronto Jazz scene before completing her debut CD, EMANCIPATION. Integrating jazz, classical, folk, big band, pop and world music influences, Roselyn has created a collection of stirring jazz and melodic grooves. The classic “Summertime” is our focus track, and it is as you\'ve never heard it; rather than a lament, this version reflects joy and delight. As producer, Brandon Grady Pitts states, “We wanted to create an album that reflected several different moods of \'Roselyn\'. You will find something here to excite and soothe your soul.”

Emancipation
Roselyn is a consumate musician who plays with a high level of passion. The CD has a great smooth feel to it. It sets the perfect mood for when you need to wind down at the end of the day. You can feel Roselyn's heart and soul being poured into every song. Great work!
