Take Five With Josh Brown

By Published: July 5, 2013
Disarray, there are so many versions of what jazz is. You just have to go with what you love and try to make what's in your head come alive. The '90s was a jazz utopia for a young kid, with great players who had new, subtle, and energizing twists on modern jazz. There were record deals and plenty of places to play. My friends and I are doing our best to try to get the music to the people again and catch their interest.

What are some of the essential requirements to keep jazz alive and growing?

Musicians who care and an audience to play for.

What is in the near future?

Songbook Trio is my new endeavor. I'm trying to create an intimate acoustic trio with a twist on the classic trio lineup.

What's your greatest fear when you perform?

Not being able to play my best.

What song would you like played at your funeral?

"I'll Be Seeing You."

What is your favorite song to whistle or sing in the shower?

"Stardust" always does the job.

If I weren't a jazz musician, I would be a:

Classical musician.
