Jazz Bridge Second Wednesdays Concert Series in Center City presents bassist Tyrone Brown at the Lutheran Church of the Holy Communion—Chestnut Street—on Wednesday, January 14. Tickets are $10, $5 for students, and are available only at the door. Show time is 7:30. Information: 215-517-8337.

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 is his subsequent career. As a bassist, Brown has recorded over 100 CDs with legends like Max Roach, Pat Martino and Grover Washington, Jr.; 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. The list of those with whom he’s worked through the years is astounding, and includes Lou Rawls, Freddie Hubbard, Phil Woods, Mulgrew Miller, Clark Terry, Johnny Hartman, Sonny Fortune, Etta Jones, Benny Golson, Dizzy Gillespie, Kenny Barron, and J.J.Johnson. Max Roach said, “Tyrone Brown is one of the most creative musicians I have ever worked with,” while Bob Blumenthal of the Boston Globe noted that “he plays with the passion and flair of a flamenco guitarist.”

Jazz Bridge, an award-winning nonprofit dedicated to assisting Greater Philadelphia Metro area jazz and blues musicians and vocalists in times of crisis, sponsors these neighborhood concerts throughout the region to keep the sound of Philadelphia alive.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
