Sandy Brown grew up in Edinburgh, Scotland, and became one of the foremost British Jazz clarinet players and a leading acoustic engineer. Together with Edinburgh trumpeter Al Fairweather, they created the music of McJazz. Sandy died in 1975 leaving a rich musical legacy. Sandy and Al pushed traditional jazz into 'mainstream', a bridge between classic and modern jazz. This website provides a similar 'bridge' with articles, features and a monthly online magazine about all aspects of jazz.
