Paul Brown

Peak label-mates and superstar guitarists Paul Brown and Marc Antoine's latest album Foreign Exchange is a stylistically diverse collaboration album, available on CD and digitally via Peak Records (Concord Music Group). Having performed together at Paul Brown's Guitar Night in 2008, two-time GRAMMY® Award winner Brown, who was in the early stages of producing a follow-up to his smash 2007 disc White Sand, invited Marc Antoine to play on one of his new songs. This initial session sparked a dynamic, complementary creative flow that developed into a fruitful new partnership, giving rise to the magical give and take of Foreign Exchange.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
