Born in Kansas City, Missouri, Deborah’s musical talents have propelled her from coast to coast in the USA, eventually leading her to Europe via Japan and Indonesia culminating in a 12 year residency in Europe.
Performing in nightclubs, concerts, jazz festivals, on television and radio soundstages, Deborah has made a name for herself with appearances in more than 50 countries around the world.
Deborah Brown has 16 recordings as a leader and is featured on many others as a special guest artist.
Deborah has enjoyed participating in and creating many unique musical situations….among these (in no particular order) are….A quintet recording with trombonist Slide Hampton. A concert tour in duo with Roger Kelloway. Another highlight, a duo performance and recording with guitarist, Joe Beck. Also with pianist, Dorthy Donegan on a festival in Holland. A performance with trumpetist, Clark Terry. A studio recording of the cd “A Lover’s Question” with author James Baldwin. Tours with her quartet “Jazz 4 Jazz”, that featured pianist Horace Parlan, Red Mitchell or Hein Van De Geijn on acoustic bass and legendary drummer Ed Thigpen. Concert appearances with Johnny Griffin, Benny bailey, Billy Mitchell, Michelle Le Grand, “Toots” Thielemans, Harry “Sweets” Edison, Bobby Shew, Kenny Drew, Roy Hargrove, Eric Reeds Trio, The Doky Brothers and so many more jazz greats. Her latest cd was recorded with the fine saxophonist, Bobby Watson on “All Too Soon”. A concert performance and a future recording with Lee Konitz.

An international Jazz artist and one of Kansas City’s most sought after drummers, Mike Warren has accompanied a veritable who’s who in jazz, from Jay McShann, Dr. Billy Taylor, Milt Jackson, Christian McBride, Joe Sample, Wynton Marsalis, and Clark Terry to Bob James, Ronnie Laws, Roy Ayres, Bobbi Humphries, Bobby Watson, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Dan Thomas, Eric Alexander, Cecil Payne and Kevin Mahogany. As a recording artist, Mike has recorded with scores of musicians covering multiple styles of music and most recently has appeared on two of Najee’s releases with more coming.

Praise from percussion icons Max Roach, and Louie Bellson was resoundingly seconded by Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Wynton Marsalis, who paid Warren the ultimate compliment for the guy responsible for keeping the beat: “Yeah man, you in there.”

Warren has arranged and written for many Artist including The Jazz Disciples, Voyage, Eclipse and vocalist Lisa Henry. He has been featured on the cover of JAM Magazine twice. Mike is a Jazz Drum Set professor at the University of Missouri Kansas City’s Music Conservatory in the Jazz Studies department and is one of the most well rounded and creative drummers around, but is particularly noted for his “Swing” feel. As an educator, Warren has taught for over 20 years and has been an adjudicator and clinician for students nationally and internationally.
