Maurice Brown is widely recognized for his tenure with Tedeschi Trucks Band, but the Grammy-Award-winning trumpet virtuoso has also been featured on dozens of stellar recordings alongside greats like Aretha Franklin, De La Soul, Diddy, Lettuce, and Cee-Lo Green, to name a few. More recently, Mobetta dedicated his time entirely to a solo career, featuring a stellar band blending hip-hop, jazz, soul, and funk-inspired beats from all over the map.
Now, he’s released a new single “Stand Up” featuring hip-hop master Talib Kweli from his newest album The Mood, due out March 24, 2017. The two exchange verses in this new jazzy number that serves as a call-to-action and encourages listeners to stand for something and be meaningful with their lives. Listen to the feel-good tune below:
From now until Jazz Fest, Maurice will be hosting Mobetta Tuesdays at the Jazz Standard in NYC. Every Tuesday, he will be welcoming special guests (like Snarky Puppy’s Michael League, saxophonist Skerik and more) to join him for different weekly musical themes. More information about Mobetta Tuesdays can be found on the venue’s website.
