Jaimeo Brown drums, Chris Shol­ar gui­tar & Jaleel Shaw alto sax

 Wed­nes­day 11th Janu­ary – Thurs 12th Janu­ary


“A dia­logue between the present and a col­lect­ive past of suf­fer­ing and sal­va­tion, with echoes of Coltrane..As power­ful as it is ambi­tious” **** The Guard­i­an

 “Jaimeo Brown makes music that shakes your heart and soul.” The Arts Desk

 US drum­mer Jaimeo Brown (pro­nounced jah-mayo) deftly weaves togeth­er the acous­tic and the digit­al, con­nect­ing jazz and clas­sic blues with con­tem­por­ary rock, hip-hop and elec­tron­ic music in his affect­ing, power­ful Tran­scend­ence pro­ject.

Tran­scend­ence is the product of long-time col­lab­or­a­tion between Brown and co-pro­du­cer­/­gui­tar­ist Chris Shol­ar (who won a GRAMMY® Award for his work on Kanye West and Jay‑Z’s Watch the Throne). Both emer­ging from a gen­er­a­tion that appre­ci­ates the jazz in hip-hop, the artists with whom this duo has col­lab­or­ated with speaks for itself. Brown, as drum­mer, has sat behind the skins for Stevie Won­der, Q‑Tip, Carl Craig, Kenny Gar­rett, Geri Allen, and Bobby Hutcher­son, among oth­ers. Sholar’s work as gui­tar­ist and pro­du­cer has spanned the likes of Bey­once, Kanye West, Jay‑Z, Frank Ocean, A Tribe Called Quest, Robert Glasper, D’An­gelo, Com­mon, Dr. Dre and more.


More than just music, Jaimeo Brown Tran­scend­ence is a move­ment, a moment, and an imper­at­ive: Work Songs – the second instal­ment on the Jaimeo Brown Tran­scend­ence series — res­on­ates with echoes of protest and rhythms of a call to free­dom. Borne of oppres­sion and sung in con­di­tions of hard­ship, the music is vis­cer­al but inher­ently uplift­ing.  It tells power­ful stor­ies of per­sever­ance and human ingenu­ity explains Brown. “Tales of endur­ing com­munit­ies through song, from Afric­an-Amer­ic­an slaves to the stone­ma­sons of Japan. These songs paint a pic­ture of struggle as imme­di­ate as today.”

 “My goal is to cre­ate some­thing that feels good, is soul­ful and speaks to hearts. Some­thing spir­itu­al and mov­ing,” says Brown of his cre­at­ive pro­cess. “I hope that people will be moved in the way I was when cre­at­ing it.”
