Vernell Brown, Jr.  

Vernon Jarrett of the Chicago Sun Times writes ,"His followers say he's forever in the process of composing a great new Jazz that celebrates his ancestors’ triumphant past and the hopes of his generation.  When Brown composes, arranges and plays out his innermost feelings, his listeners are inspired to live and change the world in which they live."

“Brown is a virtuoso jazz pianist and multifaceted composer known for sparkling compositions and creative performances.” --Vegas Times

 

 

 

Vernell Brown, Jr.
in his own words:

 "When I performed with Kenny Garrett in the south of France we shared the stage with Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Dave Holland — I experienced a sense of family versus just playing music. My personal encounter with Herb Alpert was in the recording studio. Herb has an incredible sense of humanity. He wasn’t egotistical and stated, ‘Vernell, whatever you like about my solo, you can use and whatever you don’t you can take out.’ His open heart and generosity is bigger than life.”

--VBJ, 2010 interview with Review Journal
