Jaimeo Brown

Percussionist and composer, Jaimeo Brown, began his drum career at age 16, growing up in the San Francisco Bay area with a rich musical heritage on both sides of his family. He tagged along with his father, bassist Dartanyan Brown, and mother, pianist and woodwind specialist, Marcia Miget, as they performed all over the country with the National Endowment for the Arts as jazz artists. He has since performed all over the world with a wide range of musicians including Stevie Wonder, Carlos Santana, Wynton Marsalis, Kaamal (aka Q-Tip), Carl Craig, Kenny Garrett, Geri Allen, Steve Turre, Pharoah Sanders and Bobby Hutcherson, with whom he established his national reputation at 19 years of age. Greatly inspired by the Gees Bend spirituals of Alabama, he brings their music and artwork to light in the upcoming debut album of his band, “Transcendence.” “I focused on the Black spiritual as the root of the material because of its raw unfeigned expression,” said Brown

Il meglio del 2016 secondo Libero Farnè

Read "Il meglio del 2016 secondo Libero Farnè" reviewed by Libero Farnè

Che dire? Annata mossa con brio, intrigante se si ha la curiosità di setacciare fra le varie edizioni discografiche, che ormai non sono più espressione di un mercato orientato e condizionante. Ottime conferme (Henry Threadgill, The Claudia Quintet, Franco D'Andrea...), ma anche novità di spessore da batteristi sempre più di riferimento (Jaimeo Brown, Matt Wilson...) e ...

U.S. Jazz From Denmark: Six Recent SteepleChase Releases

Read "U.S. Jazz From Denmark: Six Recent SteepleChase Releases" reviewed by David A. Orthmann

The opportunity to listen to six recently released discs on the venerable SteepleChase label (and the SteepleChase LookOut branch) is a little like reading an anthology of short stories by distinguished authors from a particular year or period. You get a hearty helping of vital, mature voices, most of whom operate somewhere in the jazz mainstream, ...

Jaimeo Brown Transcendence: Work Songs

Read "Work Songs" reviewed by Maurizio Comandini

Il bellissimo e colpevolmente trascurato Trascendence, uscito nel 2013, aveva creato in noi attese molto alte per il lavoro successivo di Jaimeo Brown, batterista e percussionista nato a Des Moines nel 1978 e poi cresciuto in una New York multi etnica e multi culturale, potendo contare sull'influenza benefica di due genitori entrambi musicisti. ...

Jaimeo Brown Transcendence: Work Songs

Read "Work Songs" reviewed by Mark F. Turner

The inventiveness to cope with difficulty lies at the heart of Work Songs, the follow-up to drummer Jaimeo Brown's outstanding 2013 release Transcendence (Motema). The syncopation of hammers on nails forging railroad tracks and weary chants of laborers are mixed with progressive blues, rock, jazz, and hip hop influences to create a patchwork that's soulfully compelling. ...
