Lovingly written by Lorraine Milne, The intention of this resource kit is to explore Brown’s legacy to Australian jazz by examining different aspects of selected compositions such as:

  • styles and eras of jazz which influenced his music
  • the use of particular modes and harmonic structures
  • the use of groove-based riffs, shifting time signatures, chord clusters
  • the exploration of texture and timbre of unusual instruments
  • free improvisation
