Vernell Brown, Jr. Wikipedia
Vernell Brown, Jr. born August 13, 1971 is a jazz and Rhythm & Blues pianist.
He started on piano at four, but from six to thirteen he switched to drums. He returned to piano later in his teens which led to his being discovered by Jerry Moss. In 1988 and 1989 he was a finalist at the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Piano Competitions. In 1990 he released A Total Eclipse, and in 1992 he released Stay Tuned. He became comparatively silent after that, but as of 2004 worked in Kenny Garrett's band. He has also appeared on releases by Craig T. Cooper (most recently on Caught Up in a Moment, 1999) and Ronnie Laws (Dream a Little, 2000).
