The Jazz Guitar of
Andy Brown


Updated March 2023

Hoping this early March finds you well. I'm fortunate to have some really fun musical performances coming up and I wanted to give you a heads up in case going out to hear live music is in your future.

This Wednesday, March 8 I'll be at Chicago's great listening room Winter's Jazz Club. This will be a warm-up for Sunday's Oscars and will feature all tunes originally composed for films. I'll be joined by a fantastic trio of Chicago All-Stars: Eric Schneider on reeds, Russ Phillips on trombone and Joe Policastro on bass. Look for tunes by Johnny Mandel, Michel Legrand, Jerome Kern, Luiz Bonfa, David Raksin and many more. Sets at 7:30pm and 9:30pm.

If you or anyone you know will be in Manhattan over the weekend this Friday and Saturday March 10 and 11 I'll be playing in NYC at Mezzrow. This place is one of my favorite jazz clubs in the world and is located right in the heart of the West Village. I'll be there as part of the fabulous saxophonist Harry Allen's trio along with Mike Karn on bass. Sets each night at 7:30pm and 9pm.

I'll be at another fantastic New York-area jazz room on Sunday, March 12. I'll be performing at Shanghai Jazz in Madison, New Jersey with the amazing vocalist Petra van Nuis and the wonderful Harry Allen on saxophone. We'll be playing from 6pm-8:30pm.

I feel extremely fortunate to have several steady gigs at the moment:

Mondays - Joel Paterson and Friends at the Green Mill from 8PM - 12AM. Joel is a wonderful fellow guitarist and we explore a variety of genres from jazz/western swing/blues/country. With Beau Sample on bass and Alex Hall on drums. (I'll be absent 3/13)

Wednesdays - Petra van Nuis/Andy Brown voice/guitar duo at Hemmingway's Bistro in Oak Park from 6PM-9PM. Hemmingway's is a fantastic restaurant and Petra and I so happy to resurrect their Wednesday jazz nights. (I'll be absent 3/8)

Thursdays - Solo Jazz Guitar at Chicago's famed Green Mill Cocktail Lounge. I play behind the bar for the cocktail hour show from 5PM - 7:15PM. No cover, tasty drinks, and I take requests! (I'll be absent 3/9)

Sundays - Andy Brown Quartet at Andy's Jazz Club. Sunday Sets in Jan/Feb 2023 are at 7PM and 9:15PM. With drummer Phill Gratteau, bassist Joe Policastro and pianist Jeremy Kahn. (I'll be absent 3/12)

I also have some other really cool gigs in March with various leaders. More info about these can be found on my schedule page.

Early Warning: I'll be in Indianapolis for a special concert on Friday, April 7. Petra and I will be joining forces with the legendary Indianapolis pianist Steve Allee and his trio for a night of tunes from the Indiana Songbook (Cole Porter, Hoagy Carmichael, Wes Montgomery, J.J. Johnson.) The event starts with a Fish Fry...yum.

I'm regularly posting new video to my YouTube page.
