Remembering Oscar Brown Jr. - Dwight Trible, feat. Maggie Brown
Giving Thanks Past and Present

If you've ever heard Oscar Brown Jr., you must be aware of his genius. He is a celebrated singer, songwriter, playwright, poet, civil rights activist  and actor famous for such songs as All Blues, Dat Dere, The Snake and Watermelon Man to name a few.

Dwight Trible, a Southern California Jazz Legend, is one the many musicians who loved OscarDwight, a sublime singer and stylist in his own right, has crafted a heartfelt tribute to the singularly indullable artistry of Oscar Brown Jr.

Maggie Brown (Oscar's daughter) is an accomplished singer, songwriter, producer and educator. Chicago Tribune's Howard Reich says "Maggie embodies a powerful and passionate performance. She is one of the most fiercely committed artists in Chicago"

Oscar Brown Jr. was seen as the forerunner to socially-conscious performers like Gil Scott Heron. The Los Angeles Times described Oscar's work as "a mosaic of poetic musical images."

Dwight and company have chosen to present a mix of these musical images. They are really excited about putting a new twist on these rare gems and invite you to come along on this magical excursion!

*This concert is the first in a series sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts entitled, "Concerts and Conversations with Southern California Jazz Legends."  Additional concerts in this series will feature: Hubert Laws,  The Clayton Brothers with Ernie Andrews,  Poncho Sanchez Latin Jazz Band  and  the Alan Pasqua Trio.
