Maurice Brown Effect at the Kennedy Center
Mar 19, 2010 07:30 PM - 09:30 PM
A 2002 alumnus of the Kennedy Center's Betty Carter's Jazz Ahead program, Maurice Brown is "one of the most exciting young trumpeters in jazz--be it New Orleans or New York" (DownBeat), who is "a triple-threat artist, equally effective as virtuoso trumpeter, versatile composer, and supremely confident bandleader" (The Chicago Tribune). Exciting the ears of bebop enthusiasts and hip-hoppers alike, Brown's passionate and improvisational rhythms have electrified the music industry. Innovation is the key to his soulful melodies, which have graced both legend Aretha Franklin and urban legend Talib Kweli's versatile recordings.
The Maurice Brown Effect will give two performances on the evening of March 19, 2010 at 7:30 and 9:30. Tickets will be available to the public for purchase beginning December 9, 2009 through the Kennedy Center website.
