Derek Brown

Derek Brown
featuring FSU Jazz Orchestra and Jazz Faculty

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 24 | 7:30 PM
Alice R. Manicur Assembly Hall, Lane University Center

Crossing genres from jazz to classical to funk, saxophone innovator Derek Brown’s playing style must be seen to be believed. As described by jazz journalist and historian Scott Yanow, “Brown performs unaccompanied solos that occasionally make one recall Bobby McFerrin in his early prime and the great saxophonist Eddie Harris ... utilizing slap-tonguing, circular breathing, a wide interest in musical styles and dazzling coordination to create rather unique music.” Joining Brown onstage are talented performers from the
FSU Jazz Orchestra and faculty members from the FSU Department of Music.

When you listen to Derek Brown play the sax, you figure this guy has got to be using all kinds of loops and overdubs and electronic pyrotechnics. And then when you figure out it’s just him playing live, it is a little bit hard to fathom.
