"Brown's next stop was New York City, where he produced, arranged and performed with acts such as The Roots and P. Diddy. He immersed himself in hip-hop and then brought what he learned back to jazz" — NPR, Morning Edition

"Chicago, Illinois native Maurice Brown is one of the most important musicians to look out for during this decade. The trumpeter/composer/producer has made waves in the record industry and he’s barely 30 years old." — Brian Pace, The Pace Report

"...Maurice “Mobetta” Brown is one of the best horn players on the planet. " — DJ Jake Crates,

"Maurice Brown has somehow found a way to seamlessly fuse the instrumentation and attitude of a hard-bop combo with R&B romanticism, urban grooves, and hip hop energy. " — Chris, CD BABY

"Brown's new record "The Cycle Of Love" is a powerhouse, a record that should change the way people listen to jazz, while converting those that don't." — Sal Nunziato, Huffington Post
