Maurice Brown, July 6-9, 8/9:30pm

One of the first things that stands out about jazz trumpeter Maurice Brown is how in spite of being just twenty-five, he has such a deep appreciation for those who laid the groundwork before him. Brown began immersing himself in the artistry of horn virtuosos such as Clifford Brown, Louis Armstrong and Miles Davis at the young age of sixteen. After graduating high school, he began backing trumpet great Clark Terry on numerous European dates, playing with seminal talents like Oscar Peterson, Vanessa Rubin and Houston Person. A few short years later, he won first place in the National Miles Davis Trumpet Competition, held in St. Louis, MO. Brown continues to garner the praise of most all those who experience his aural offerings. Come witness this impressive balance of contemporary jazz with some old school flavor thrown in for good measure. Jazz Bakery, 3233 Helms Ave., CC, 310.271.9039, www.jazzbakery.org
