Kathy Brown’s CD plays on jazz stations overseas

Dr. Kathy Brown debut CD Mission: A Musical Journey, that generates great interest at home, is being played on jazz stations overseas. Local interest spiked within the last few weeks on account of the pianist's recent radio interviews on Power 106, News Talk 93, FAME FM and RJR 94 FM and among guests at the corporate functions she performs.

Offbeat has learnt that, on Tuesday, listeners to Miami based "Serious jazz" radio station WDNA 88.9 FM heard Grandfather, a track from the CD, on the program Latin Jazz Quarter, hosted by Cary Alexander.

Jamaican Howard “Flagga” Duperly, sales & marketing manager and WDNA FM disc jockey, confirmed the Latin Jazz Quarter airplay and also featured tracks from the album on his Saturday afternoon show, The Reggae Ride.

In August, the CD garnered airplay on two Toronto radio stations, CUIT FM on Global Rhythms, hosted by Ken Stowar and on CHUM FM after Brown’s solid performance at the Island Soul Festival at the Harbourfront Centre in Toronto.
