Grammy Award-winning trumpet player Maurice “Mobetta” Brown is no stranger to working with some of the most talented musicians in the world. His new solo-album, The Mood, (Mobetta Music/Ropeadope) will be released on 3-24-2017 and it features his live band in a studio album that showcases his soulful composition, ambitious production & adventurous improvisations in a seamless blend of jazz, hip hop, soul and sounds from around the world.
“Stand Up” is a call for humanity, to take a stand for something and come together to make a positive difference in the world around us” Mo states. “We are in a political and economic climate that has been sapping the energy and sense of hope from everyone around us. Inspired by the advice that my father gave me when I was a kid (stand for something or you’ll fall for anything), I want to call people to come together, take a stand for a better life & a better world and help one another in whatever way possible, big or small. To collectively be the change we wish to see in the world.”
