Review: Brown’s current outing is a vibe: ethereal grooves that flow in a certain direction. Brown & his band are creators of the future who know how to meld sounds together and play with time with less inclination to form. They have created their own fuzzy space, playing less so with formed lines but more with colors, to create that atmosphere to explore feelings. And a CD to cover to match!
