Last night, our fearless leader was named to Earshot Jazz Magazine’s Hall of Fame. Former student Kelly Barr accepted on Mr. Brown’s behalf, before members of the Seattle jazz community at an awards ceremony held at Tula’s. This is a special honor for Scott – thank you to everyone who cast their vote to help make this happen! See the story at http://seattlejazzscene.com/?p=8262 .
