Jazz isn’t what it used to be, but for trumpeter and vocalist Brian Newman, that’s entirely the point and his debut album, SHOWBOAT, showcases that.
SHOWBOAT provides Newman with the opportunity to bust the art form out of its constraints, to allow the jazz influences of Miles Davis and Chet Baker to find room with his love of rock bands such as Nirvana, Beck and Thin Lizzy.
Recently, Brian got the chance to perform with Wynton Marsalis for performances tied to the US Tennis Open in NYC and he co-produced with Lady Gaga the track, “La Vie En Rose,” featured in the film, A Star Is Born. Brian was also the bandleader and trumpeter for Lady Gaga’s “Cheek to Cheek” album and tour with Tony Bennett. Currently, Brian is the bandleader and arranger for Lady Gaga’s Jazz & Piano show during her Las Vegas residency. Brian also has his own late night Vegas residency at the Nomad, called Brian Newman: AFTER DARK where he brings an ode to old Vegas.
“I don’t want to do what’s already been done,” he says. “We are bringing jazz to another level but still referencing the tradition. Jazz shouldn’t be placed in a glass jar.” “We can make jazz accessible,” states Newman. “That’s what I want to do – and I am going to do that.”
