Brian Brown was born in Melbourne, Australia. He performed as a soloist and with his own ensembles since the mid-1950s throughout Australia and in Scandinavia, US, Japan, UK, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Brunei and Germany. He played only original music. A self-taught player who emerged in the '50s as a leading figure in Australia and remained prominent through the 1980s. The Brian Brown Quintet were regulars at Horst Liepolt's influential Jazz Centre 44 in St Kilda, which operated from 1955 to 1960. The band were enthusiastic ambassadors for bop, introducing Melburnians to a musical style which was still largely unheard in Australia. Brown made eight albums over an 18-year period heading various groups. 1978 Brian Brown Quartet in Concert. 1979 Bells Make me Sing. 1972 Carlton Streets.

First Meeting of Acclaimed Ensemble and Singer Yields a Program of Small Group Jazz with Voice for the 21st Century. For example, I had been listening to the Oscar Brown song & as You’re Living’ for two years before the date. The first time I heard Sting’s & Arrangement,’ I called him and asked for a lead sheet, because I wanted to play that song with the quartet even before the idea of recording with Kurt came up. I also chose & Só Tinha de Ser Com Você,’ a Jobim song that has not been done to death. I told everyone to study Elis Regina’s version, because I wanted us to sound authentic rather than generic.

Brian Ernest Austin Brown OAM (29 December 1933 – 28 January 2013) was an Australian jazz musician and educator.
