With the September digital release of Storytelling, soulful communication between Jeri Brown and Woody Woods is rendered on some of Canada’s finest popular gems including Hallelujah, and Both Sides Now. Storytelling is one to listen for. Released digitally for the Jongleur Productions label.
Jeri Brown has earned a reputation as one of jazz’ most outstanding "artistic" vocalists. With many fine musicians who are labeled "artistic," it’s sometimes overlooked how richly musical, thoroughly accessible and enjoyable their music can be. Jeri Brown is focused, ambitious, daring and intent upon creating music that is both well conceived and honest. Brown is well known for performing and recording with passion and dedication.
Committed to the legacy of vocal jazz, Ms. Brown’s performances fill the historical spectrum of classic American songbook themes, original jazz compositions, and contemporary world themes with intense vocal improvisations, and include collaborations with diverse, legendary jazz artists.
Multi JUNO nominee, Jeri Brown has performed or recorded with such musicians as Erik Truffaz, Fred Hersch, Kenny Werner, Kenny Wheeler, Don Thompson, Leon Thomas, John Hicks, Grady Tate, Kirk Lightsey, Betty Carter, Ellis Marsalis, , David Murray, D.D. Jackson, Billy Hart, Pierre Michelot, John Betsch, Onaje Allan Gumbs, Tony Suggs, Michel Donato, Winard Harper, Chico Freeman, Joe Lovano, Cyrus Chestnut, Dr. Billy Taylor, Kenny Wheeler, Avery Sharpe, Rufus Reid, Gerry Gibbs, Seamus Blake and Jimmy Rowles.
