Come enjoy multi-gold album artist and Billboard “Best Of” awards recipient Tom “Jamaica Funk” Browne has an unstoppable passion for new music, one that has kept him on tour and in the recording studio of late. With over three decades of recordings and sharing the concert stage with luminary figures of jazz music, Tom Browne continues to captivate listeners as an entertainer who has successfully mixed stage presence and musical artistry with a sincere audience connection and warmth. “People don’t just come to hear your music,” says Browne, “they come to connect with you!”
Tom is perhaps best known for what music icon George Benson said of his “believability in any musical style; his ability to communicate!” This ability to immerse ones-self into the musical era, style and dreamscape of a composition, and then artistically create as though you are perfectly at home in that location, is a rarity among musicians. Perhaps this ability is resultant of Browne’s upbringing near Jamaica, New York where greats like Count Basie lived on one block and James Brown on another. “It was the merger of so many musical influences and styles that created the Jamaica scene, and certainly my approach” says Browne.
Tom has certainly worked with the industry’s best and brightest, having shared the concert stage with Bob James, Dave Grusin, Najee, Roy Ayers, Joe Sample, Melba Moore and a host of others. Sought early on by Columbia Records, Warner Brothers and CTI, Browne was introduced (by Earl Klugh) to Dave Grusin and Larry Rosen, and subsequently signed his first recording contract with the newly formed GRP Records label. GRP and Browne produced some of the labels best hits including Funkin’ For Jamaica, Thighs High, Fungi Mama, Let’s Dance and Secret Fantasy. To date, Tom has over sixteen solo projects on the market including the recent Neo-Soul/ Jazz sizzler entitled Legacy (which had Browne up for Grammy nomination consideration in several categories,) and most recently the 2019 single release “Mi
