New press for the Nathan Brown Trio album "This Is The Moment"

"The New York-based trio serves up a winning sound that’s both invitingly warm and very, very cool. They perform well crafted originals, as well as captivating interpretations of familiar tunes like the Barry Mann/Cynthia Weil classic “Just a Little Lovin’,” which receives a gently swinging treatment here. Other top tracks include “Bird’s Opening,” “Cheer Up, Charlie,” “The Fourth Way” and the title track. Nathan Brown is superb and subtle on upright bass. Felix Lemerle, originally from Austria, is a jazz guitar wizard. And Peter Traunmueller, who hails from Austria, deftly handles the drumming. The interplay among the three musicians is intuitive and zestful." -  Paul Freeman at Pop Culture Classics

More New Press For Nathan Brown Trio "This Is The Moment"

"Bassist Nathan Brown leads a suavely swinging trio with Felix Lemerle/g and Peter Traunmueller/dr through a collection dominated by originals with a few dashes of covers. The team is sublime, with Flemerle showing an allegiance to Kenny Burrell on the subtly bopping “Curley’s Revenge” and snappy “Bird’s Opening” which features the leader bowing like Slam Stewart. Brown shows an ability to dig a deep groove on “Just A Little Lovin’” and the team sounds blissful on the ballad “Cheer Up, Charlie,” and Tranumueller crisply brings everyone to attention on the hip “Don’t Look.” A dream for fans of classy mainstream."

New Album Review from WBAA, Purdue Public Radio

"This is a swingin', fun recording that will have you off your feet doing your happy dance! The originals are very melodic and accessible to a wide audience. The standards are given a fresh sound (Favorite: This is the Moment.) while relentlessly swinging all the way through. This trio has it together! 5 Stars for Mainstream radio!"

New review of my soon-to-be-released trio album!

Big thanks to Bass Musician Magazine for the shout out! 

"Every so often a musician and his ensemble come along and stamp their name on today’s musical landscape. With their new release “This is the Moment” (Release Date: September 8th, 2017), led by bassist Nathan Brown, the trio does just that. Joined on the new release by Felix Lemerle on guitar and Peter Traunmueller on drums, Brown and his comrades show why their musicianship and compositional skills are gaining the attention they deserve."
