Ted Brown's ("Dad's") Latest CD Release!

Tenor saxophonist Ted Brown recorded a new CD called "Shades of Brown" for SteepleChase Records with his long-time comrade, Steve LaMattina on guitar and my long-time friend and outstanding bass player, Dennis Irwin. It is has been downloadable on iTunes since September 2007: click on "Links" on this web site. Hard copies are also now available just in time for the holidays! For those of you who don't know, Ted Brown is my father, who met my mother, Phyllis Terrazzano Brown while both were studying with Lennie Tristano in the early 1950's. There they enjoyed a musical and social circle including contemporaries such as Warne Marsh, Lee Konitz, Sal Mosca, Sheila Jordan, Ronnie Ball, Peter Ind, Ben Tucker, Jeff Morton, Willie Dennis and more. Mom and Dad turn(ed) 80 this year, as did Lee Konitz. Sheila just turned 79 with a party/gig at The Iridium in NYC this past week.
