Around the Blogs: Marion Brown Retrospective

Aug 5, 2011

I always learn something new and interesting from the blog Birds with Broken Wings. Today is a post on a musician who has completely escaped my radar, called "one of America's most neglected jazz musicians of the 20th Century", the late Marion Brown (1931-2010), an alto saxophonist and ethnomusicologist.

Visit the blog to read up on a musician who cut his teeth in the Avant-Garde with John Coltrane(Ascension) and Archie Shepp(Fire Music), employed Chick Corea, Anthony Braxton and Bennie Maupin for his recordings, and recorded some unjustly neglected masterpieces. There's plenty of music to listen to as well.
