For the latest edition of the WhoSampled interview series we speak with Jazz / Funk trumpet legend Tom Browne ahead of his appearance at 'These Are The Breaks' taking place at London's Jazz Cafe on Friday 18th April.
Best known for his early 80s Jazz Funk anthem 'Funkin' For Jamaica', a groove led ode to the Jamaica Queens neighbourhood of New York where Tom grew up, Tom's 30+ year recording career joins the dots between the Jazz stylings of Be Bop, Funk, Boogie and Hip Hop. In this interview we discuss career highs, innovation in Jazz and how sampling has connected a new generation to Jazz music.
