Maurice Brown’s talent orbits him simultaneously through three worlds: contemporary jazz, blues-rock and cutting-edge hip hop. He is a mastermind as a trumpeter, composer, arranger and producer. When Maurice picks up his horn, his soulful melodies soar into a rarefied space that uniquely marries be-bop to hip-hop and rock, producing his own distinctive sound. Displaying an affinity for the trumpet at an early age as he won the national Miles Davis Trumpet Competition and studying under legendary clarinetist Alvin Batiste, his critically acclaimed debut album HIP TO BOP, recorded in New Orleans, foreshadowed his unique talent for creating fresh bop-inflected jazz. Maurice performs original content from his latest album The Mood, released on double vinyl in 2017.
