Bob Brozman - Rhythm exercise & "La Mandoz"


In 2003 or 2004 I had the privilege of being Mr.Brozman's chauffeur for a day. I drove him and a group of musicians from the Island of La Reunion (near Madagascar) around Holland. During the workshops and performances they played wonderful VERY rhythmic music. The music is a combination of African and Indian music and of course french musette, La Reunion is still French I believe. You can read a lot of very interesting stuff on Bob Brozman's website

Dean Brown - Guitar "Pentatonic Scales"

I first got to know Dean Brown when I saw a concert of the Brecker Brothers. (Belga Jazz) This was in a line-up with James Genus and Rodney Holmes.
I had it on a videotape and could watch time after time.  Dean has a very rhythmic way of playing and uses a lot of colors. He had a great Wha solo like I had never heard before.
Be sure to check out other Youtube-clips. Dean is an amazing player.
