Great trumpet player on trip home from South Korea
Damon Brown is one of the UK’s top jazz trumpeters. He is possibly best known at home for his work with saxophonist Ed Jones and their band Killer Shrimp, which won the 2007 Best Live Group in the Parliamentary Jazz Awards. However, Damon has also spent time living in Barcelona and Paris and recorded with many international jazz stars, most notably former Miles Davis saxophonist Steve Grossman with whom he recorded the CD This Time The Dream’s On Me . Damon has also worked a lot in Japan with pianist Yutaka Shiina [Roy Hargrove - Tokyo Sessions], and following on from this has for the past few years based himself in South Korea playing and recording with the country’s leading jazz musicians as well as many visiting USA players. He’s just back for a short UK tour so don’t miss. Supporting Damon we have the sensitive piano accompaniment of Andy Nowak, virtuosic bass from Ashley John Long and the grooving drumming of Andy Tween.
