Review By Anthony Callender,The Stereo Times,April 2000

"The Tyrone Brown Sting Sextet­Ýs "Song of the Sun" is another winner. This all-string sextet comprised of Tyrone Brown (g, bg), John Blake (v), Melissa Ortega (v) Beth Dzwil (viola), Nina Cottman (viola), Ron Lipscomb (c) and William "Duke" Wilson (perc) give us a different sound, and one that is refreshing."

Review By Dizzy Gillespie,Naxos,

"Tyrone Brown's playing reminds me of those colorful bouncing balls you see at a carnival."

Review By Grover Washington, Jr.,Naxos,

"This music is a unique, inventive, fresh approach with personality and soulfulness. The combinations of rhythms and melodies in the compositions will embrace you. Tyrone Brown is at the top of his game."

Review By Kenny Kirkland,Naxos,

"Tyrone.....sure can groove."

Review By Max Roach,Naxos,

"Tyrone Brown is one of the most creative musicians I have ever worked with. He is a fine composer and arranger and a virtuoso instrumentalist."

Review By Pat Marino,Naxos,

"In my opinion, Tyrone Brown is one of America's most prolific bassist; remaining totally active with "New Music." These recordings are a real pleasure for me."

Review By Rufus Reid,Naxos,

"Tyrone Brown projects a fantastic mood through his compositions and playing. His precision and groove is always present."
