Heard you for the first time tonight at Beverley & Jonathan's in Jamaica Plain. Love your sound and those who have influenced you. Fantastic! I will try to hear you perform whenever I can.
Is the upcoming Ghent performace in Ghent, NY? If it is, I'd like to come.

Hello Alex, got acquainted with your parents and Maddie this past summer. Maddie and my daughter became friends at Northwestern and they all visited. Great family. Hope to hear you live sometime! We're in NC but may catch you in NY sometime.

I met you this past weekend when you played at GW for the jam session. I sang "Crazy" and although it was my first time singing with a band, it was alot of fun, and you were so nice to me even though my chart was horrible!! I absolutely loved watching and listening to you play the piano, you are so talented. I didn't realize how young you are and that only makes your accomplishments more impressive! You definately inspired me because we are close in age. I am so glad I got to watch you play and listen to you talk about how you arranged "Just One of Those Things". I have been listening to alot of your music lately. I hope to see you play or talk with you again sometime in the future! Good luck with everything you do!
August 13, 2011
The vibrance of your music last night echoes throughout our morning. We all agreed that Eric, Zach and you make it appear so easy! Hope to catch more future performances, Alex.
August 9, 2011
We'll be checking out the An die Musik performance on the 12th (August)...and will have some guests with us. Looking forward to hearing you all once again.
February 2, 2011
Alex, I wrote something on FB, but it seemed to have evaporated. Anyway, just wanted to say how much I liked the new CD. It was all wonderful, Lamentos reminds me of the Third Stream music of Rampal and Claude Bolling, only with a Latin flair. Good luck to you and your brother and the rest of your bandmates.
January 28, 2011
I met you at the William Penn hotel in Pittsburgh. I've purchased your new CD and really enjoyed everything about it. I also checked out the Alondra De La Parra CD. You are an incredible musician. Please let me know if you are performing in Pittsburgh in the future I would like to come see you.

I was at the MIM on Saturday evening, December 11th and was treated to a performance of a lifetime. I was looking forward to enjoying the talents of Paquito D'Rivera and was so pleasantly surprised to be privy to my first hearing of the talents of Alex Brown. What a thrill he and Paquito created for an audience that was entranced by the power of these two musicians. Their artistry was captivating. I will now be following the career of this exceptional pianist. Looking forward to more of the artistry AND selection of music that was presented at the Musical Instrument Museum in Phoenix.
December 11, 2010
Alex, you are a one in a million talent. I thoroughly enjoyed your performance at the MIM tonight.
December 4, 2010
Hey, Alex! I am here with the Brocatos right now, and they told me about your site! I live in NYC - maybe I'll see you at one of your performances in the near future...I have many memories of you playing the piano at their Christmas parties in Baltimore!
November 8, 2010

Hi. Alex. This is Steve Silverman the old guy who was asking about your venues and got some Samba tips from Mark Walker after your gig in Gaithersburg, MD. Turns out I was one of the first students of Walter Salb, Allison Miller's teacher.I see that you are from my hood. I have family who grew up in Columbia, MD. I'm from Silver Spring. Intrigued by the story that might be behind "Montrose Towing". Anyway, just loved your playing and wish you all the best in your career. And Happy Birthday.
March 5, 2010
Hi just thought it funny that i'm 22 and called alex brown too, keep up your good work;-)
February 5, 2010
Dont know if you remember me, but you gave me lessons for a summer way back in 2005 or so. Back when you still fresh out of Wilde lake. I want to thank you for your lessons because i carried on with piano and am going to major in Music at NYU. Im a senior now. Just want to say your story inspires me because i can make like you did.

Great to meet you tonight at Zinc when we were paying our bill. Love your sound. Will look you up when I am around where you are performing. Maybe in Tokyo, but I think I am there closer to Christmas rather than November.

Hey, how you doing Alex? What a coincidence; we both have the same exact names! I really like your music. I've seen a few videos and stuff, but I never met you in person. I'd take any opportunity! I'm in the Tampa area, would be awesome to see you lay some jams here in Cigar City!
Best, Alex Brown!

I've been hearing a lot lately about an up and coming, very talented young jazz pianist, who has been playing all over the world to great acclaim! Denver, CO is waiting for him to book here with baited breath -- but alas, no engagements on Alex Brown's calendar for Colorado!!
Come on out -- I miss you and the CO jazz scene needs you ;-)
Hope you are well Alex. Drop me a quick line when you can and tell me how you are doing. Spain, that's awesome. Such a short stay though. I hope you are holding up OK with all the traveling around the world.
January 1, 2008
heard you the other night at lincoln jazz with Paquito .....thought you were amazing.
November 21, 2007
Sorry about the extra submissions. Just talked your mom to see if you were in MD this week, but was informed you are in Mexico with Paquito. Please give him my regards.
Nice web site, and congrats on your progress and successes. Keep doin' it. Am looking forward to catching you live one day soon – maybe in NYC.
I was in Toronto this past summer and visited with David Virelles and some of the Cuban musicians friends. He laid his CD "Motion" on me. If you haven't heard it, I think you might really enjoy it.
Otherwise, things are good here – a few age-related problems – still teaching at RU/staying in Camden, DE,
touring occasionally solo and with others. Catch you later, Stanley
November 21, 2007
Dude, I just listened to Aqui, Oh! (Toninho Horta)- because I wanted a piece with you, Oscar, and Mark for my mom to hear. Ummmm all I have to say is that was OFF - THE - CHAIN - HOT!!!!!!!
