Spotlight on Jazz-The Maurice Brown Effect

January 6, 2011

If your hips are swaying, fingers are snapping and heart is skipping, don’t call the doctor just yet—It might be the Maurice Brown Effect. Feeling good has become symptomatic of audiences from the banks of the Mississippi to the streets of New York, courtesy of soulful jazz trumpeter Maurice “Mobetta” Brown.

Maurice is an unpretentious, cultured soul with a strong musical backbone. Raised in south Chicago, Maurice was awarded a full music scholarship to Northern Illinois University upon graduating from Hillcrest High School. After winning first place in the esteemed National Miles Davis Trumpet Competition, Maurice found new flavor in the heart of Louisiana, where he continued his studies at Southern University—and captivated audiences weekly, headlining at New Orleans’ premiere jazz club, Snug Harbor.

Maurice currently resides in New York where he is finishing his sophomore album, “The Cycle of Love”, while immersed in a grittier urban setting. Expectations are high for the release, which will showcase Maurice’s talents as a trumpeter, composer, and bandleader as well as the fierce, down-home melodies we love him for. Like legendary trumpeter, Clark Terry said, “Brownie is the young trumpeter to watch for sure. I see young cats all over the world and Maurice has it.” And we want it.

The Maurice Brown Effect is now appearing at Brooklyn Bowl & Sullivan Hall. If you call yourself a music lover, this is a DO NOT MISS…
