Anthony Callender
The Stereo Times, April 2000

"The Tyrone Brown Sting Sextet¬≠√Ěs "Song of the Sun" is another winner. This all-string sextet comprised of Tyrone Brown (g, bg), John Blake (v), Melissa Ortega (v) Beth Dzwil (viola), Nina Cottman (viola), Ron Lipscomb (c) and William "Duke" Wilson (perc) give us a different sound, and one that is refreshing."



John Henry
Audiophile Audition, March 2000

"This sort of chamber jazz stuff is right up my alley. Any players trying to bridge the gap between European classical music and American jazz will get a good listen from me, even if it doesn't always work that perfectly. This group has lots going for it: Brown is one of the grooviest bassists playing today; he's been with Nat Adderly, Clark Terry, Freddie Hubbard and Max Roach, among others. John Blake is one of the greatest living jazz violinists, with 35 CDs to his name. The other string players come from various symphonies and string quartets of note, and percussionist William Duke Wilson adds his rhythm touches to the strings on a couple of the tracks. Bassist Brown adds three of his own tunes to the CD, and the two standards All the Things You Are, and Softly as in a Morning Sunrise, provide welcome familiarity in the program. (The first is a striking unaccompanied violin solo by Blake.)"



Bob Blumenthal

"Tyrone plays with the passion and flair of a flamenco guitarist."



Dizzy Gillespie

"Tyrone Brown's playing reminds me of those colorful bouncing balls you see at a carnival."



Grover Washington, Jr.
Naxos

"This music is a unique, inventive, fresh approach with personality and soulfulness. The combinations of rhythms and melodies in the compositions will embrace you. Tyrone Brown is at the top of his game."



Kenny Kirkland
Naxos

"Tyrone.....sure can groove."



Max Roach
Naxos

"Tyrone Brown is one of the most creative musicians I have ever worked with. He is a fine composer and arranger and a virtuoso instrumentalist."



Pat Marino
Naxos

"In my opinion, Tyrone Brown is one of America's most prolific bassist; remaining totally active with "New Music." These recordings are a real pleasure for me."



Rufus Reid
Naxos

"Tyrone Brown projects a fantastic mood through his compositions and playing. His precision and groove is always present."
