"One of Chicago’s most appealing jazz guitarists…uncounted Chicago jazz artists have collaborated with Brown on club dates and recording sessions, and they know better than anyone the depth of his work and unpretentiousness of his manner…for all his easygoing virtuosity, he places the emphasis on musical phrase rather than pyrotechnics."

                           

                                -- Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune

Andy Brown & Friends is a series that Chicago jazz guitarist Andy Brown has been presenting biweekly at Winter's Jazz Club since July of 2019. Andy invites two different guests to join him for each installment of the series, drawing on his vast relationships with the finest jazz musicians on the Chicago scene. Often focused on a specific composer or genre within the jazz idiom, these nights feature a delightful and spontaneous musical conversation that listeners have found fascinating and enchanting.

Chicagoan Andy Brown has been called a “superior mainstream guitarist” in Downbeat magazine. 

As a sideman he has performed with internationally known jazz musicians including Howard Alden, Harry Allen, Warren Vaché, Ken Peplowski, Hod O’Brien, Anat Cohen, Kurt Elling and many others. 

His love of great tunes as well as accompanying skills have made him a favorite with vocalists in the Chicago area. He also had the good fortune to accompany Barbra Streisand when she appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show in 2009.

Andy has made many festival appearances around the world including performances in Brazil, Europe and Canada. In 2012, his trio was invited by the Chicago Mayor's office to perform for the Nobel Peace Prize dinner in Chicago where invited guests included U.S. presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, as well as the Dalai Lama and Mikhail Gorbachev. 

Since 2009, Andy has co-led a two-guitar quartet with renowned guitarist Howard Alden. In 2013, Delmark Records released a CD of the group entitled "Heavy Artillery" which received four stars in Downbeat Magazine and was featured in their annual Albums Of The Year issue. 

His latest CD is the 2016 Delmark Records release “Direct Call.”
