On Wednesday 13 September , American Tom Brown and his band will be playing at the Boerderij, Zoetermeer.
Tom Browne aka ‘Mr. Jamaica Funk’ has been one of the big trumpet stars since the 1970’s. He is very familiar with both jazz, funk, disco and R&B, and it shows. He broke through in the New York jazz scene under the wings of saxophonists Sonny Fortune and Lonnie Smith and became known worldwide due to his 1981 super hit ‘Funkin for Jamaica (N.Y.)’.
After a while things started to get real quiet around Browne: he realized his dream of becoming a pilot. Fortunately for us, music lovers, he made a comeback in the mid 90’s, with the critically acclaimed album “Another Shade of Browne”, on which he collaborates with none less than bass player Ron Carter.
