LINDA KOSUT in A Tribute to Oscar Brown Jr.
Linda Kosut Brings Her Sold Out Tribute to Oscar Brown, Jr. to Octavia Lounge

"BAY TIMES CRITICS PICK ... THE BEST OF THEATRE 2006"

Linda Kosut, San Francisco jazz and cabaret performer brings her show, "Long As You're Living," a joyous and moving tribute to the great Oscar Brown, Jr., to the Octavia Lounge for two nights only,  March 24 & April 7, 8:00 pm. Linda will be backed by pianist/trombonist MAX PERKOFF and The Max Perkoff Band.

Kosut performed this show last November to a sell-out crowd at Jazz at Pearl's.  The shows at the Octavia Lounge will include new material and includes songs from her upcoming CD also entitled "Long As You're Living," an Oscar Brown, Jr. song originally recorded by Abbey Lincoln.

"Linda has put together a show that really covers a lot of ground. From the old classic tunes to ones that many people would not have heard - material that Daddy wrote later in life.  Thank you for supporting Linda in this work that is so important to me . . . carrying on the work of Oscar Brown Jr." --- Maggie Brown, Oscar's daughter


"The music, the poetry, everything about the show was outstanding. Yes, it was classic Jazz and very soul-filled. Yet to say only that is an understatement. The show deserves spotlight attention"

Brown was an inspirational and influential composer and playwright who died in 2005 at the age of 78. "I have always been a fan - when I heard his first records, the emotion and drama he brought to his music were clearly evident as you listened to his songs.  His lyrics and delivery were penetrating - performing with an artistic intensity that went right through me."

Brown's work has been described as "monuments to socially conscious songwriting on a par with the best work of Curtis Mayfield and Gil Scott-Heron, who also wrote about the full panoply of black life -- joy, anger, love, frustration, humor -- and helped define Afrocentrism. Brown did it first, in a way that managed to be both entertaining and serious, melding soul, jazz and musical theater into a body of work that always deserved far more recognition than it got."

Kosut says of Brown's work, "There is so much wit, charm and intelligence in this material, that it deserves to be heard by a brand new audience."

Linda is bringing this show to New York in June 2007.
