There’s very little in the jazz industry that bassist/composer/arranger/educator Tyrone Brown hasn’t done. His beginnings—studies in orchestration and harmony at the Berklee School of Music and private study with Philadelphia Orchestra Principal Bassist Michael Shahan—are as impressive as his subsequent career. Brown has recorded over 100 CDs with legends like Max Roach

and has been the recipient of numerous international awards and fellowships. Perhaps most notable of all his achievements was his solo bass concert, celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Moers Germany Jazz Festival, performed before an audience of 5,000 people. Brown has recorded several acclaimed CDs as a leader, and many of his compositions for bass have been published by Jamey Aebersold and Mel Bay.
