Steve Berndt Featuring Brian Browne

[x] Close

Having enjoyed three years of rotation on CBC's national jazz program "Tonic", vocalist Steve Berndt & famed pianist Brian Browne come back to the 4th Stage for an evening of jazz standards and original compositions from their two albums "Déjà Vu" and "All Over Again".   The duo perform in the minimalist "Tony Bennett/Bill Evans" style but with the same spontaneous, improvised approach to arrangements as they recorded live in the studio.  Well known reviewer Scott Yanow, a contributor to the L.A. Jazz Times says "Steve Berndt has a strong voice, a very appealing sound and his long tones are a joy. Brian Browne is a full rhythm section by himself, and whether leaving space or adding a powerful bassline, he is a perfect match for the singer. The two often seem to think and breathe as one."
