Cameron Brown and the Hear and Now: HERE AND HOW!Cameron Brown and the Hear & Now: Here and How! (OmniTone 15205)

His first album as a leader after nearly four decades of performing!

Known for his work with Don Cherry, Beaver Harris, Donald Byrd, Archie Shepp, Ed Blackwell, the George Adams-Don Pullen Quartet and, more recently, with vocalist Sheila Jordan and in the Grammy Award-winning ensembles of Joe Lovano, Cameron Brown is heard here — and how! —for the first time as a leader. 

Recorded live by renowned engineer David Baker in a concert tour of Belgium, Cam', legendary vocalist Sheila Jordan, trumpet wizard Dave Ballou, and drummer Leon Parker —with tenor master Dewey Redman as guest on two tracks —work it out on a two Don Cherry tunes ("Art Deco" and "Rememberance"), a Don Pullen original ("Double Arc Jake"), the standard "For All We Know," and two Cameron Brown originals. Here and How! will appeal to adventurous jazz fans (especially for the repertoire and players) as well as vocal jazz (and Sheila Jordan) fans.
