Biography

Rick Braun's been playing trumpet since he was a kid. No news there for the legions of fans his richly melodic playing style has attracted since the release of his first album, Intimate Secrets in 1993. Less known is the fact that he's been a singer, and a good one (backing Rod Stewart and Sade among others, with vocals as well as his stellar trumpet) for most of his life, as ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Now this I like ! 30 Sep 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Caught quite by accident, while trying to blot out the background intrusion of an otherwise busy office. This rolled over an iTunes radio-generic Jazz station and for a few moments my ears tuned in excietedly.
What we have is expensively polished brasses.

Definatley tuneful, very rhythmic, never challenging and therefore rarely improvised, this picks up very much where you've been left recovering if you have had a dose of SLAM by David Sandborn.
If you like your Jazz with added adjectives like soft, smooth or lounge, then you should explore readily. The spread of titles are easily recalled as songs rather self-indulgent performance masterclasses. Purists will cry "sell-out" but I don't care. While the album is broad in its appeal, the sparkly nature does not detract from the first class precision performances and crystal clarity. A little too light for some perhaps, but very, very pleasant on the ear indeed.
Happy music!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant CD..... 13 April 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This was my first CD by Rick Braun but when i got it i was amazed and dazzled at the guest musicians listed on it. It wasn't going to dissapoint and it didn't. But further than that its a good strong album that i keep getting out and playing quite regularly and thats i good a sign as any of good music that you keep wanting to listen to. Its jazzy, funky, melodic just a beautiful album. Go on buy it....

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Hit for a Smooth Jazz Superstar!! 25 Feb 2004
By B. Crawford - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have NOT stopped playing this CD since I picked up a copy two weeks ago. Each time I listen to it I hear something new, and my level of enjoyment just keeps increasing.
Ricks mixture of soulful composition and quality personel really highlight his skills as both an artist and producer, and trust me, he has some REALLY talented people working with him on this project. Starting with the lead song "Green Tomatoes" where he once again joins forces with "bwb" cohorts Kirk Whalum and Norman Brown for a SERIOUSLY funky jazz jam session, he features some of the top studio artists in the business on this CD. Rickey Peterson, Mitch Forman, Tony Maiden, Louis Conte, Randy Jackson, Alex Al, Paul Jackson Jr, Gerald "Wonderfunk" Albright, Gregg Karukas, and Jeff Lorber are some of the stars of smooth jazz contributing to this album.
Rick covers all the moods on this CD, from the up-tempo funky "Green Tomatoes" and dance-able "Stereo", to the laid-back love ballard "Turquoise". This is really good stuff, and though he doesn't have any technically challenging performances here, the songs are well written, arranged, and very entertaining. Throw in REAL strings on 4 of the 10 cuts and you have one EXCELLENT album. One worth listening to over and over again.
I'm enjoying it and I'm sure you will too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Melts in Your Ear......Just Like M&Ms 27 Aug 2003
By Catherine L. Morrison - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Oh, my God, from the first song, "Green Tomatoes", to the last "Mother's Day", I was hypnotized & seduced. "Zona Rosa" and "Latinesque" are feel good beats. As fabulous and as talented as Rick Braun is, I never thought he could surpass "Kisses in the Rain". This is by far Rick Braun at his absolute best. With an ensemble of remarkable artists, Norman Brown, Jeff Lorber, Greg Kurakus and of course Gerald Albright, this album is a delicious mix of latin and jazz infused into one tantalizing CD. The Album is a balanced mix of upbeat and easy melodies, this CD will comfort you while driving, seduce you while making love and, and kick it up a few notches when entertaining. Love, love, love the CD. This is definitely a must have!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Esperanto, by Rick Braun 25 May 2005
By R. Keck - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Rick Braun covers a wide range of moods in "Esperanto" with the smoothest trumpet playing I've ever heard. This CD is as good as it gets, especially with his solo on Villa de Costa, and the songs are all great, from rhythm to smooth. I can't stop playing this album! Braun is exceptionally talented and I highly recommend this album for trumpet lovers and everyone else, because you'll love his music!

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh yeah! 26 Oct 2003
By Lelaalis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Rick Braun has done it again, I recently purchased this album at Borders after sampling it in the store. This album had me groovin' and swaying the whole time. If you like Rick Braun you are going to love this album and if you're new its a good way to get to know his music, you won't be disappointed. Its a pure pleasure from start to finish.
