The Jazz Standard
Maurice Brown has been tearing it up at his residency at The Jazz Standard - with a new cast of special guests each week. Next Tuesday is no exception; the lineup includes Nir Felder, Lee Pearson, Chad Selph, and Ropeadope alumni Skerik and Michael League. Dubbed Electric Ride, it's all part of Mobetta Tuesdays - check the details here and grab your tickets.
It feels like we are introducing a legend everyday, and here we go again. Maurice 'Mobetta' Brown - trumpeter, composer, producer - has bridged Jazz, Blues, Rock, and Hip-Hop. The New Orleans native was uprooted by Katrina, settling in New York and embracing a unique Be-Bop to Hip-Hop style. Currently touring with the Tedeschi Trucks Band, Maurice is busy with his label which will now join the Ropeadope family as Mobetta Music. He's lined up with a residency at the Jazz Standard in NY, and his next release - THE MOOD - is ready for prime time. The first single with TALIB KWELI is out, check it here. The message is clear and fits right in with the Ropeadope vibe. THE MOOD hits on March 24. Dig.
