Shades of Brown photo
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 State Journal

"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 . . . .

Airborne CD photo
Harmonious Wail-Airborne

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.

Airborne Real 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.

Melodie du Crouton  Real 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.
