Maggie Brown is captivating in her presentation and she effortlessly delivers a powerful performance whether singing spirituals, jazz, contemporary hip hop or even rapping. Her self-produced, debut, solo recording “From My Window,” was released on compact disc and cassette on Browns’ independent label Mag Pie Records. In 1996, the album was nominated by the Chicago Music Awards for Best Jazz CD. Maggie Brown was then nominated the following year for Best Jazz Performer (1997). Recent appearance at the Schaumburg Library Center in concert with her legendary father, Oscar Brown, Jr., afforded Maggie exposure to a New York City audience which included the highly acclaimed singer/songwriter Abbey Lincoln. After witnessing what Ms. Lincoln described as “a great performer,” she then invited Maggie to perform two duets on her latest CD, Wholly Earth which was released January 1999 on the Verve label. The Chicago Tribune declares Maggie is “sublime” on her duets in which she “maintains her musical identity. . . pointing to her depth as an interpretive artist.” You do not want to miss Ms. Brown’s debut performance at World Folk Music Company.
