O’s Notes: Derek presents us with a very different approach to contemporary jazz sax. Beatbox Sax is a unique solo endeavor, a one-man band that has to be seen to be believed! Brown extracts percussion, rhythms and melodies from his sax keeping it funky all the way through. He mixes original tunes with covers of classics adding vocals on “Can’t Help Falling In Love”, “Baby” and “Stand By Me”. We also enjoyed “Chameleon”, “Blueberry Jam” and “I Got Rhythm”
