Jazz trio coming to Grey Area Gallery

Beautiful music and art have always gone decidedly well together.

Grey Area Gallery is thrilled to be hosting the award-winning jazz ensemble, Brownman Electryc Trio, at their gallery space on Vedder Road on April 6.

This powerful threesome combines virtuosic performance skills with a deep knowledge of the jazz repertoire, all set against an urban sonic background.

Brownman Trio’s CD Juggernaut debuted at number three on the US iTunes jazz charts. This was due in no small part due to Brownman’s affiliations with legendary jazz-hip-hop icon, Guru.

The band is Brownman Ali on electric trumpet, Tyler Emond on six-string electric bass, and Colin Kingsmore on drums.

Brownman was the featured soloist for the jazz-hip-hop group Guru’s Jazzmatazz since 2006, replacing Donald Byrd in that primordial ensemble.

Brownman Electryc Trio  on April 6, doors 8 p.m., (documentary at 8:30) show at 9 p.m. $25, at #101-7408 Vedder Road. Call 604-846-0088 or go to www.greyareagallery.com
