BROWNMAN + 1 feat. Brownman Ali (tpt) + Adrean Farrugia (pno)
Sun-Mar-30, 8pm, $15 door, $10 students, artists
@ Musideum, 401 Richmond St. W., Toronto, ON
Multi-award-winning jazz trumpet player Brownman Ali, best known for his creatively bombastic & energized playing style, strips down to a bare bones configuration in this new Musideum "+1" series. Sunday's intimate duet show will feature with the Juno-nominated piano veteran ADREAN FARRUGIA. Brown has had a long friendship and musical association with Farrugia, both representing the top-shelf jazz improvisers in the city, both sharing uncanny time-feel sensibilities. Farrugia best expresses this shared rhythmic concept as, "we seem to practice with the same metronome!". This pairing of Ali & Farrugia is a remarkable example of modern jazz interactivity and connectivity at it's finest.
The BROWNMAN+1 series continues throughout the year at Musideum, each month Brown appearing with 1 other mystery musician -- could be piano, could be bass, could even turntables - who knows! Each duet showcasing Brownman's lesser known introspective & self-reflective playing approach accompanied by a mystery +1 each month.
