"But without a doubt, a revelation of the second day of the festival was the incredible saxophone virtuoso. . . Derek Brown of the United States" - Vinnytsia Jazz Festival review 

"Coltrane, Getz, Boots, Desmond, Parker…The great saxophone masters… and they all had a sound or voice of their own. Derek has pioneered and created his own unique voice on the saxophone. This is so hard to do today since there have been so many saxophone masters through the years. I consider Derek a modern master!" - Chuck Surack, founder and president of Sweetwater Sound

"Brown shows that he has more than technique pulling these pyrotechnics off without electronics, overdubs or any assistants.
