New Album is Here!

Available for digital download here (to the right), iTunesAmazon, and cdbaby)

Solo saxophone like you've NEVER heard it before! Without any looping or electronic effects, Derek Brown performs intricate originals and a surprisingly wide range of old and new standards: everything from Bach to Bieber! In his bold new style, Derek simultaneously mixes dozens of classic saxophone extended techniques like slap tonguing, multiphonics, and double tonguing, as well as many of his own innovations like striking the sax with rings, singing lyrics while playing, and even putting an egg shaker in the horn. All of these elements work together to create a surprisingly full, polyphonic sound (percussion + bass lines + melodies) all with one traditionally monophonic instrument, the tenor sax. And it’s all done live without any looping!

Derek plays a P.Mauriat System 76 tenor, JodyJazz DV Tenor 8* mouthpiece, Legere Signature Series reeds (2 3/4s), and the BG Revelation Jazz Ligature.
