Fred Wesley and Tom Browne
Jazz and Funk Legends Fred Wesley and Tom Browne
Two celebrated instrumentalists share the stage during this concert at The Howard Theatre. Trumpeter Tom Browne cut his teeth and rose to fame as a sideman with Weldon Irvine and Sonny Fortune. In 1979, he launched his solo career with Browne Sugar
, which held strong on the jazz charts for several weeks. Browne took a break from music in the late '80s, working as an airline pilot, before returning to music in 1994 with another string of albums, including a 2010 release with Fred Wesley, who performs with Browne for this show. The trombonist was the bandleader of James Brown's fabled JBs, and has performed with Parliament-Funkadelic and Bootsy's Rubber Band, in addition to being a musicologist, teacher and composer. Wesley began his career as a teenager with Ike and Tina Turner before hooking up with James Brown in 1968. Over the years, he has played with everyone from Ray Charles to Van Morrison, and has sustained a successful jazz career with over 15 albums.
