“No extra clutter”: James Brown and Jim Vivian have a guitar-bass conversation.  Jazz musician James Brown is a composer, first and foremost. His instrument is the guitar – but his multi-layered musical vision extends well beyond that. He’ll play his compositions – some of which were originally written for classical ensembles and some for jazz quintet – when he makes his GigSpace debut on April 1.  It’s a smaller group, however – a duo concert with well-known Toronto bassist Jim Vivian, where they’ll also play some standards and music by the Beatles and Joni Mitchell. Brown and Vivian have been performing together regularly for two decades – “It’s one of the duos that I keep coming back to,” Brown says.  Alayne McGregor March 2017 OttawaJazzScene.ca
