Album Notes
"wonderful singer with a beautiful soul" Sheila Jordan

"Intelligent and eloquent blues influenced singer on whom the word is fast spreading."
The Guardian March 2002

"Second album from singer Rosie Brown, and one which certainly stands out from a crowded field. ...the qualities of her own voice and the originality of her approach constantly shine through- from the light-hearted Straight no Chaser to the wistful intensity of Close Your Eyes. And here's a version of Caravan (arranged by Dan Snape) which really is different..."
Pete Martin Jazz UK, July/August 2001

A close up production catches every nuance of Brown's clear voice, as she runs through Jon Hendricks style vocalese (Straight no Chaser is decked as a Monk homage), sultry bossa nova (Moon and Sand), and exhilarating crossover (a surprisingly taut Lazy Afternoon). She brings distinction to unfamiliar material (Little B's Poem) and breathes new life into standards (Love for Sale). Who could ask for anything more?
Mike Butler Jazz UK March /April 2002

"An interesting set of standards from Rosie Brown, with a fresh and solid four piece rhythm section. I particularly like their version of Lazy Afternoon ...A singer with a lot of potential- keep your ears open for this one."
Paul Scott- Musician, December 2001

Edward Carr

'Now is the Time''s Rosie's true brilliance
'Now is the Time' quite simple demonstrates why Rosie Brown's versatility, clarity, and technical ability are pushing her to the top of her profession. With a clear and soulful voice, she carves out new bright renditions for old standards, including Love for Sale and Lazy Afternoon. Whilst the catchy Straight no Chaser and Caravan shows her willingness to experiment and innovate, Little B's Poem illustrates her vision for the future...a bright and sucessful one for sure.
