This is The CO-OP – conceived and recorded back in the wild and wooly mid-oughts. The Brown Bros. brought 5 elite musicians together and asked each to bring 1-2 original compositions. After a day’s worth of rehearsal, we went into the studio for 2 days @ the now defunct Clinton Studios in Hells Kitchen NYC. We recorded in their live room (wow what a room) and were truly pleased with the output. Jeremy Pelt did triple-duty as a player, composer and producer, and Steve Mandel recorded the sessions.
The music sat on the shelf for the better part of a decade until the Brown Bros. finally pressed the record.
You can now listen to this record pressed on some phat and lovely vinyl, and also on all digital platforms globally. We invite you to take 40 minutes out of your busy day to do just that.
Thanks for reading.
Yours in Music,

Chris Botti is the subject of much debate in the hardcore jazz community. Many fans doubt his authenticity. At Brown Brothers we heed the Herb Alpert approach to determining how we feel about Botti’s music: we close our eyes when listening. Try it and tell us if you think he’s authentic.
