Space Time Records is proud to announce the release of "African Ripples," the long-awaited new album by multi-faceted pianist, composer, and arranger Keith Brown. Recorded in November of 2020 at Samurai Hotel Studios in Queens, NY, "African Ripples" has received national and international praise and features innovative original compositions by Brown as well as several arrangements of tunes by such luminaries as Fats Waller and Stevie Wonder.
Memphis-born, Knoxville-raised, and New York-based, Keith Brown, is one of the most in-demand pianists on the contemporary jazz scene, and he is excited to be returning to Knoxville to celebrate the release of his latest project. With the express purpose of fostering connection and positivity, Keith's third album, "African Ripples," takes listeners on a journey throughout the life of the composer and offers a musical interpretation of many experiences that we all share in common - communion, hope, fear, nostalgia, grief and love. "My hope is that the listener will find enjoyment in the sounds, rhythms, harmonies, and melodies familiar to them and the ones that may be unfamiliar," asserts Brown. "I hope that the energy and soul we put into this recording will give them energy and uplift the soul."
Keith will be joined by drummer Terreon Gully,Dezron Douglas on bass, Russell Gunn on trumpet, Jamel Mitchell on saxophone, plus other special guests. Come out and hear this amazing band performing music from the album as well as some even newer music.
