Jazzheadchronic Presents The Funk, Soul & Rare Groove Review. Guest Hosts WAH WAH 45s joined by legendary ‘Funkin For Jamaica’ Star, Tom BroGuest Hosts WAH WAH 45 Djs joined by legendary ‘Funkin For Jamaica’ Star, TOM BROWNE + Full live band, here to bring the jazz funk thunder and serious positive get down action.
TOM BROWNE (born October 30, 1954, Queens, New York), commonly referred to as "Mr. Jamaica Funk", is a jazz trumpeter who rose to prominence first through his early work with Sonny Fortune and for his #1 charting 1980 single "Funkin' For Jamaica (N.Y)" and notable dance tracks like "Thighs High".
Browne originally played piano, having taken lessons from the age of 11. Turning to the trumpet, inspired by his collection of jazz albums, his first gig was in a Queens club, The Village Door. In 1975, he landed his first professional gig with Weldon Irvine.
From here he played with Sonny Fortune and Lonnie Smith and was later introduced to Dave Grusin and Larry Rosen at GRP Records via Earl Klugh. Grusin and Rosen signed him to GRP (via Arista Records) and Browne broke onto the music scene in 1979 with a highly acclaimed instrumental jazz fusion album "Browne Sugar". His first real breakthrough came in 1980 with the release of "Funkin' For Jamaica", which hit #1 on Billboard's Hot Soul Singles for 4 weeks, and a UK Top 10 hit.
He has also recorded with the likes of Roy Ayers, Siedah Garrett and some true greats of classic / modern Jazz funk music + we are truly honoured & can't wait to welcome him to The CLF Live Stage.
Then on the 1s and 2s [and as always] prepare to be shaken and very, very stirred as guest host DJs from The simply outstanding, eclectic, funked up record label WAH WAH 45s take you on a good time safari in search of the perfect groove, beat and positive vibration. Strictly on the good foot! Absolutely Positively Storming!
