Welcome to the Smooth sounds of dee Brown

Featured This Week On The Jazz Network Worldwide:  Guitarist, dee Brown with his new CD “Remembering You”.

Innervision Records album Remembering You, pays homage to a very special woman in Brown’s life that will always be in his heart. The CD is comprised of emotionally driven tracks dedicated to Shaunia Edwards, an extraordinary woman who shared a treasured season of love before her transition to heaven in 2016.  

Shaunia Edwards, a respected gospel singer, was not only Browns fiancé, she was the co-writer and featured vocalist on “I’m Here For You (I’ll Never Leave You” (Brown’s hit from his 2014 album Brown Sugar, Honey-Coated Love which made Groove Jazz Music’s Top 100 of 2015) and his holiday song “It’s Christmas.” Even from heaven and always in his heart, Shaunia is working her magic.  Brown turned a personal tragedy into a life-affirming instrumental chronicle of endurance and hope. 

The first single “Hey Baby” hit the Groove Jazz Music Top 30 chart.  The fresh, buoyant, danceable funk jam “Pop the Question” is the second single from Remembering You.  The title track “Remembering You,” is a lush soaring ballad that is the ideal coda to the album.  The co-writers were Valdez Brantley (piano, keyboards, programming, and former music director for Usher, worked with Mary J. Blige, Beyoncé’ and James Brown), soprano saxophonist Dezie McCullers, Jr. and drummer Ron Otis, known for his work with Aretha Franklin, Earl Klugh, and Kem. 

Their powerful studio camaraderie also infuses the high energy Brantley produced tracks, “Hey Baby, “Pop The Question,” “I Want You Too” (featuring Kern Brantley on bass) and “So Much.”

Renowned urban jazz flutist Althea Rene pairs perfectly with Brown to create a breezy, whimsical stroll through “Our Summer.” Co-writer and keyboardist Bob Baldwin created a hypnotic-duality with Brown on the playful, briskly rolling “I Will.”  Nate Harasim, jazz/R&B artist, composer, and producer hit emotional high points on the mystical, soul jazz-flavored ballad “Beauty Within.”

“Music is my sanctuary, the thing I love to do, and the concept just made perfect sense, to write songs about different moments in our season together, most love songs are created and inspired by real love and true emotions, and I can attest to that,” says Brown.

dee brown has performed or share the stage with: Al Jarreau, Gerald Albright, Alexander Zonjic, Bob Baldwin, Mindi Abair, Jessy J, Paul Brown, Paul Taylor, Darren Rahn, Tim Bowman, Randy Scott, Gail Jhonson, Nate Harasim, Bob James, Brian Culbertson, Spyro Gyra, The Ohio Players, Najee, Jeffery Osborne, Aretha Franklin, Michael and BeBe Winans, as well as Kern and Valdez Brantly.  

Even as the album is released, Brown is now in another incredible, inspiring season which he attributes directly to the power of prayer. He is now engaged to be married in the summer of 2018.

“dee Brown’s musical walk down memory lane is a heartfelt expression of where love can lead you. There is no better memory than one that fills a heart with joy, memories, and blessings” says Jaijai Jackson of The Jazz Network Worldwide. 

Brown is currently seeking non-exclusive worldwide agents to collaborate with regarding touring and concert bookings for the 2019/2020 concert season.

Tell us a little about your background...
After years of absorbing his father’s love and knowledge of jazz, Demitris Brown better known as dee, re-paid George (Sonny) Brown one more time with the new release of the CD titled “A Little Elbowroom”. The elder Brown passed away May 2, 2009, and dee’s new recording pays tribute to the man who was responsible for his emergence into the music theatre. Read More
While growing up in Detroit MI, Brown, the youngest of three children, was exposed to the recordings of his fatherís favorite artists: Miles Davis, Thelonius Monk, Charles Mingus, Les McCann, Cannonball Adderly, West Montgomery, Charles Christian and George Benson. Known to most as Sonny, dee’s father would enlighten his son of how significant these legendary musicians were in the scope of jazz history.
“We would talk for hours about the greats in jazz,” explained dee. “He was also my biggest critic. I would bring over new songs as we were working on them, and we would sit down outside and listen to them. During the recording of 'A Little Elbowroom', I had pre-mixed three new songs.
As he laid in the bed, he said “I like them all, but that second song, that’s your hit.” “At the time, I had no name for that track. I decided later to pay my respect to my dad and named it after his nickname, Sonny.”

Eventually, dee dedicated the entire project to his father. “If it wasnít for him introducing me to jazz, I would have never found my true love and passion,” said dee. “On this CD I want to really show my love for my instrument the guitar. Many of the tracks will feature a lot of guitar work along with the sax.”

Also appearing on “A Little Elbowroom” are saxophonists Dezie McCullers Jr. Darren Rahn, Trumpeter Frank McCullers, producer, writer Valdez Brantley, Chip Dixson, Nate Rarasim, bassist Dave Henderson, Kern Brantley, vocalists Gerard Brooks and Dee D’mitri.

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!
