Shelby Brown

Detroit music is listened to and celebrated around the city and around the world. The quality of Detroit’s musicians and their sounds is second perhaps only to the diversity of their styles and genres. This city produces its own brand of Smooth Jazz, a unique soul-infused blend of Jazz and R&B.

It wasn’t until the age of thirteen that the late soprano sax giant George Howard would influence Shelby and become his first introduction to modern contemporary Jazz.

Shelby collaborating with Dee Brown hit the airwaves in 2003 with their first recording “Miracle” that landed them the number 7 spot on the DMX Smooth Jazz Chart for 6 weeks. Since then Shelby has been polished and has since launched two solo projects “No Boundaries” and the latest “The Meaning of Life”.

In January of 2007, Shelby became the proud endorser of Dymusic USA & Wisemann Saxophones which he shares with Grammy Award winning sax-man Marion Meadows. This new partnership has Shelby taken him from the United States to Beijing, Shanghai, the United Kingdom, and Italy.

In January of 2008, Shelby became the proud endorser of Remle Musical Products Inc. (manufacturer of Beechler Mouthpieces) of Northridge CA, Soundwear Gig Bags (manufacturer of Saxophone Cases) of Erlangen Germany, & Oleg Products Inc. (manufacturer of custom Saxophone Accessories) of Los Angeles CA.

In addition to sharing the stage with some of the best and most famous musicians in the industry such as Marion Meadows, Tim Bowman, Alex Bugnon, Bob Baldwin, & Nick Colionne.

Shelby has performed and continues to perform internationally for the United States Military. Entertaining Troops serving in Japan, Korea, Diego Garcia & Singapore. Bringing with him a spirit that uplifts morale but more importantly a touch of home.

In all that Shelby still finds the time to be the topic of discussion. Appearing in several of the music industries top magazines, (The Instrumentalist, The Urban Network Magazine, M.M.R.) and an array of overseas publications.

Shelby has also establishing himself as philanthropist by giving back to the community. Teaching adults, teens, and young children how to read, write, and compose music as well as donating instruments to under privileged children.

Shelby’s signature model saxophone complements his newest collection of Smooth Jazz instrumentals and vocals. The Meaning of Life covers the spectrum of contemporary Jazz. Some stand out tracks are All Out which is completed with a guitar solo by Nick Colionne and Cold in Misawa written by Shelby’s for his friends in Misawa, Japan. It contains the expressive emotional inspirational and self described “Spirit Lead Soul” that Shelby puts into each and every note. This “Sprit Lead Soul” comes naturally for Shelby whose roots run deep into Detroit’s religious community and musical heritage.

Listen for the Smooth Jazz sounds of Shelby Brown and you will again be reminded of Detroit’s great musical legacy. The Meaning of Life captures the rich tapestry of Motown’s music.

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!

A new album by the octogenarian saxophonist is always a big deal, but his latest — and the winner of the 2018 Jazz Critics Poll — is also just plain big: 3 discs and an 84-page graphic novel.

The 2018 NPR Music Jazz Critics Poll

Over 130 critics voted on the best jazz albums of 2018 — celebrated elders dominated the top of the results, but a class of younger musicians is rising.

'Jazz Night In America' Remembers Artists We Lost In 2018

Friends of the show offer memories and music of pianist Cecil Taylor, Village Vanguard owner Lorraine Gordon, South African trumpeter Hugh Masekela and trumpeter Roy Hargrove.

Nate Chinen's Favorite Albums Of 2018

For NPR Music's jazz critic and the editorial director of WBGO, 2018 was a year that saw music — not just jazz — in the throes of a creative boom, rocketing in many directions.
