NZ Musician Feature Article on the Alan Brown Trio.

..."This new release from Alan showcases his C3 Hammond organ in a trio setting. Most of the tunes on the CD are original compositions and Alan is backed by excellent local musicians Josh Sorenson on drums and guitarist Dixon Nacey.

This release is organ jazz-funk at it’s best, think Joey DeFrancesco and Jimmy Smith. At times hard hitting and gritty these three know how to lay down some serious grooves. They are also capable of laying out as well - “Unspoken” is a wonderful summer groove and their cover of Herbie’s “Maiden Voyage” shows an assured gentle touch.

New Zealand jazz at it’s best"
- Mark Robinson, "It's A Jazz Thing"


“Alan Brown is a most respected Hammond organist and has been involved with the Auckland jazz scene for many years. His talents have stretched from the band Blue Train to Chris Melville's Grand Central Band.

On About Time with guitarist Dixon Nacey and drummer Josh Sorensen he absolutely comes alive. The powerful chemistry between the three transcends in all manner of glorious grooves. From funk and reggae and delicate improvisation to energy-filled grooves.

With even hints of 70s band Focus on Pause For Thought and a beautiful rendition of Bjorks' All Is Full Of Love, About That Time is Brown's most accomplished and exciting release to date.”
