"Tuesday Happenings" is a weekly series on Tuesday nights, curated by iconic pianist and friend of Sam First, Gerald Clayton. The house band performs one set at 7:30pm which is immediately followed by a jam session from 9:00-11:00pm. Clayton is out of town for this performance and has arranged for long-time collaborator and drummer Justin Brown to lead in his place!

Born in Richmond, California (USA), drummer Justin Brown is one of the most versatile and sought after drummers of this generation. After years as an essential member of groups led by Ambrose Akinmusire, Thundercat, and Flying Lotus – he’s also been tapped to round out the sound for Esperanza Spalding, Avishai Cohen (trumpet), Terence Blanchard, Bilal, Vijay Iyer, and many others – Brown is finally ready to extend his reach beyond the drum set to lead his own band, NYEUSI.

In June 2018 Justin released his first album as a leader ‘NYEUSI’ on Biophilia Records. It is a modern-sounding and forward-thinking record in every respect, not defined by genre, style, or groove. Brown himself says: “it’s a jazz album, it’s a hip hop album, it’s an instrumental album. Jazz is living in the now.” He says he can’t help adapting to all kinds of styles. “You have to have one foot in the past and one foot in the future, and that’s what I hope for people to hear when they hear this album.”
