When you hear Maurice “Mobetta” Brown, you’ll experience a gutsy musician who is a master of contemporary jazz, blues-rock, and cutting-edge hip-hop. Brown’s sound is one-of-a-kind, rooted in bebop and spiced with hip-hop hooks. His breakthrough album, Maurice vs. Mobetta, shows him wearing three hats as musician, MC, and producer. Remixed trumpet parts dance over hip-hop beats while guests Talib Kweli, Prodigy, and Jean Grae swap rhymes with Mobetta, Brown’s hip-hop persona. Expect this and more from a musician who is ever-evolving and constantly pushing the envelope.
