Southcoast Winery Resort and Spa presents Grammy Award winning Guitarist/ Producer Paul Brown https://www.paulbrownjazz.com With over 50 number one hits songs as an artist and producer .Paul Brown’s four decade journey through the worlds of pop, R&B and jazz is the modern day musical equivalent. Starting as a drummer, he became an engineer for R&B legends (Diana Ross, Luther Vandross, Aretha Franklin) before evolving into a two time Grammy winning urban jazz producer (with over 60 #1 radio airplay hits) and finally a popular guitarist, artist and performer in his own right. In the remarkable 12 years since he released his debut album Up Front, Brown has released six albums (including three that hit the Top Ten on the Billboard Albums chart), scored countless hit singles, and done thousands of performances across the U.S. and internationally, including gigs with fellow guitarists Larry Carlton, Chris Standring and French guitarist Marc Antoine .
British Guitarman Chris Standring http://www.chrisstandring.com/about.html is popular force in contemporary urban jazz with infectious, ubiquitous R&B driven hits like "Cool Shades" (from Velvet), "Hip Sway" (title track from his 2000 album), "Ain’t Mad Atcha" (2003’s Groovalicious) and "I Can’t Help Myself" (from 2006’s Soul Express), he actually laid the foundation for his vibey, soul based, sonically expansive vision as a solo artist with Solar System, a 1995 duet project with Rodney Lee. Pushing the stylistic envelope to fresh uncharted territory, his 2010 work Blue Bolero spawned a single ("Bossa Blue") which became the #1 Billboard Contemporary Jazz Track of the Year. Standring’s other hit releases on his label Ultimate Vibe Recordings include Love & Paragraphs (2008), Electric Wonderland (2012) and Don’t Talk, Dance! (2014).
