Doug Brown - Shades of Brown
(Jeff Eckels-bass, Hartmut Weithe-drums)
"If you take Chick Corea's Acoustic Band
and pump some life into it, you'd come up with something along
the lines of "Shades of Brown," Doug Brown's jazz trio release.
Brown is a sprite, joyous pianist as well as a talented songwriter.
Both skills are in evidence on "Germannation," a post-bop
bouncer that hits on every note."
John Kovalic - Wisconsin
"Brown has developed into an adept pianist in the folk-jazz
mode of Vince Guaraldi. His first piano album is Shades of
Brown , a surprisingly accomplished work. . . . More agile
and melodically inventive than say, George Winston or Phillip
Aaberg, Brown focuses on his strong suit - composing . . .
Phil Davis - Isthmus
I was a member of Harmonious Wail from
1990-1997. We recorded this album in 1992 & 1993.
The full band sessions and my overdubs were finished prior
to my three month trip to Cairo to study Arabic. While I was
gone Sims took the rough tracks, and with the aid of studio
maestro Tom Blain, fixed or hid most of my mistakes, added
some tasty solos, overdubs and surprising guest artists and
blended the whole into a wonderfully vibrant and unique CD.
Audio was originally written for piano, but has never
been recorded that way. The ascending fourths are a bit trickier
on string instruments, but with a lot of rehearsal, Orlando's
bongos and Ann's flute, we got the thing to take off and even
to soar a little. This remains one of my favorite Wail numbers.

Audio is meant to be a sendup of the Hot Club aesthetic.
On this recording violinist Jon Vriesacker plays one of my
favorite solos of all time with a hilarious, raucous virtuosity
that makes me laugh every time I hear it.
