Now's the Time: Brian Scarborough
I first took notice of Brian Scarborough a year or two ago. After the trombonist took a daring solo during a People's Liberation Big Band performance at the RecordBar, I leaned into someone at an adjoining table.
"Who is that kid?" I asked.
If the measure of a man is the company he keeps, Scarborough is a burgeoning giant.
He performs with Matt Otto, Danny Embrey, Jeff Harshbarger and Brandon Draper in the embedded video. On Friday, December 6, at Take Five Coffee + Bar, Scarborough will appear a similar lineup of Kansas City's jazz elite. His band will include Otto, Harshbarger, Draper and T.J. Martley.
