Marie-Claude opens with Prelude ..., beautiful, honeyed piano notes that conjure Keith Jarrett, before swinging into Errol Garner's Boogie Woogie Boogie. From there, Carleton Place pianist Peter Brown ...follows a twisted path, the only map for which is found on his mind's list of favourite musical styles....

Brown tackles jazz, blues, country, boogie-woogie, tango and the traditional Amazing Grace with obvious enthusiasm, great virtuosity, and an honest and practiced feel for music." - Ottawa Citizen


Peter Brown stretches out and hits all the right notes on his first solo record, Marie-Claude -- a diverse set of keyboard improvisations. The resourceful musician ... delves expertly into swinging jazz, boogie-woogie, rollicking blues, and swaying Latin rhythms with a steady hand and loads of unbridled energy. Whether it's the George Winston-like reflections of the title track or a back-porch country nugget like Fool Such As I, Brown's lyrical approach to the instrument is always tasteful and accessible, allowing the linear melodies to shine brightly. - Ottawa XPress


Think of a cross between A. J. Croce and Bill Evans ... and you've got Peter Brown. He's created a body of music that's plain delightful, his own compositions in particular. Of these, "Phrygian Tango" is pensive and haunting, easily the most distinguished track. In addition, he performs a stirring version of Cedar Walton's "The Holy Land". And if you thought it had been done to death, you've got to hear Brown's version of "Amazing Grace". - Muzik Etc magazine


Peter Brown is one of the most versatile and talented keyboard players around these days, but you know he can sing? "Never Fall For a Broken Heart" is a smoky blues track ... "Down At The Dancehall" is a boogie woogie number driven by Peter's brilliant playing. - The Humm


Marie-Claude hooked me right from the first track, Peter's "Prelude to..."which segues so nicely into Errol Garner's "Boogie Woogie Boogie" (although listeners beware: after drifting off to "Prelude" you're going to have to get up and dance to "Boogie". - The Humm
