Now's the Time: Maurice Brown
Longtime readers of Plastic Sax know that I'm prone to whining about the dearth of proper music videos by Kansas City's jazz artists. Regional (and undoubtedly cash-strapped) rock and hip hop artists crank out videos as if there's nothing to it. The efforts of Hidden Pictures and Reggie B are good examples. (I prefer to ignore the fact that the two videos have less than 2,500 views between them.) Trumpeter Maurice Brown is the rare jazz musician withe a top-tier music video in his arsenal. The Brooklyn-based artist performs at The Blue Room on Monday, October 3.
