Brother, Brother: The GRP / Arist Anthology


SoulMusic Records is very proud to present Brother, Brother: The GRP/Arista Anthology, a musically superb anthology by renowned trumpeter, musician and songwriter Tom Browne, covering his five-year tenure (1979-1984), firstly with GRP Records then with Arista Records. From Jamaica, Queens, NY, Tom grew up in a creatively-fertile environment among other budding musicians including drummer Omar Hakim, bassist Marcus Miller, keyboardist Bernard Wright, drummer Lenny White and songwriter/musician Lesette Wilson. After being courted by several labels, Tom opted to sign with the then-fledgling GRP label, created by top jazz production team of Dave Grusin and Larry Rosen. Following the critically-acclaimed Browne Sugar LP, Tom experienced his biggest commercial breakthrough with 1980s Love Approach which included the massive global hit, the now-timeless funk groove, Funkin For Jamaica (N.Y.), a No. 1 R&B US hit. This 29-track, 2-CD set also includes two 1991 remixes of the classic cut by the UKs Driza Bone. Toms third album, Magic kept the momentum going with charted hits, Lets Dance, Thighs High (Grip Your Hips And Move) and Fungi Mama/Bebopafunkadiscolypo, are all featured here along with later hits, Bye Gones, Rockin Radio (produced by Maurice Starr and Michael Jonzun), Cruisin, and Secret Fantasy (featuring Siedah Garrett).
