The Jazz Guitar of
Andy Brown


Updated September 2023

My brand-new CD titled "Good Atmosphere" featuring my quartet (with Jeremy Kahn-piano, Joe Policastro-bass and Phil Gratteau-drums) that has been playing at Andy's Jazz Club for over a decade is out and available for purchase on this site! You can also stream the album on Spotify/YouTube/Apple Music. I'm so pleased to release this recording featuring material we've honed over the last few years. Come listen to us live every Sunday at Andy's Jazz Club!

I wanted to let you know about some cool gigs I have coming up:

Wednesday, September 20 - I'll be at one of Chicago's finest jazz venues, Winters Jazz Club presenting a musical tribute to two of my favorite guitarists, Les Paul and Bucky Pizzarelli as part of my monthly "Andy Brown and Friends" series at Winters. I'll be joined by my good friend and excellent fellow jazz guitarist Andy Pratt (who will also sing a couple of songs) and we're excited to present two sets of tunes associated with these guitar legends. We'll be joined by the swinging and dynamic rhythm section of Doug Hayes on bass and Joe Adamik on drums.

Wednesday, October 11 - I'm thrilled to be playing in New York City at Mezzrow, one of my all-time favorite jazz clubs. I'll be performing with my trio featuring Neal Miner on bass and Ben Cliness on drums. Come hang with me in the West Village of NYC!

Here are some regular gigs where you can find me this Fall:

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 9/25 & 10/9)

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 are happy to perform for their Wednesday jazz nights. (I'll be absent 9/20 and 10/11)

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 10/12)

Sundays - Andy Brown Quartet at Andy's Jazz Club. With drummer Phil Gratteau, bassist Joe Policastro and pianist Jeremy Kahn.

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