The recent appearnce by The Alison Brown Quartet on Mountain Stage has just been posted on the show’s NPR web page. They perform five songs from their latest Compass Records release, The Company You Keep.
Brown has never limited herself to a single type of music. As banjo player with Alison Krauss & Union Station in the late 1980s, she showed that she had a distinctive voice on her instrument, and much of her music since has focused on melodic, jazz and jazz-inflected original compositions.
The band includes her husband Garry West on bass, John Burr on piano, and Larry Atamanuik on drums.
Their complete 27 minute set can be streamed online.
