Jason Robert Brown has been hailed as "one of Broadway's smartest and most sophisticated songwriters since Stephen Sondheim" (Philadelphia Inquirer), and his "extraordinary, jubilant theater music" (Chicago Tribune) has been heard all over the world, whether in one of the hundreds of productions of his musicals every year or in his own incendiary live performances. The New York Times refers to Jason as "a leading member of a new generation of composers who embody high hopes for the American musical."
JRB's first solo album, released in 2005, and featuring JRB as a vocalist, pianist, arranger and writer, with his trio the Caucasian Rhythm Kings as well as a full symphony orchestra and choir. Special guest singer Lillias White contributes a scintillating vocal to "Coming Together," a song written to commemorate the events of 9/11. The album offers a wide variety of styles and feels, produced by JRB's longtime collaborator Jeffrey Lesser.
