Brandon Primus / Press

“The Lady of Song Daneen Wilburn and Apollo Winning Saxophonist Brandon Primus shoot the stars with their brand of jazz to gospel music. High energy, soulful, and a toe tappin time.”

“It was our pleasure to cover Brandon Primus in THE JAZZ IN M.E.E. MAGAZINE January 2014 issue. He is now visible before an international and national audience of jazz lovers. Get your digital or print subscription. http://thejazzinmee.com/store/”

““No one can be better than you at being you.”Primus describes his music as “soul music that connects to people’s spirits,” and says that “There’s no one like me. I don’t compare myself to other artists. I just want to get with them to make good music.” He is, however, inspired by many musicians but mainly the late, great Miles Davis. He says, “Miles is not solely jazz, he’s innovative.” Primus is also influenced by “just being present in every situation, being completely engaged. When you’re present, the world inspires you.””

“Saxophonist Brandon Primus to open for singer/songwriter and Grammy Award Winner Chrisette Michele”

“Task Force on Student Satisfaction (StuSat)”

“Student Speaker Brandon Primus told the class, "Set your own individual goal and don't let anyone or anything stop you from accomplishing that goal. Stay focused and stay true to yourself."”

“Alto saxophonist Brandon Primus fronted a makeshift band with more than a passing interest in blending popular music with jazz nuances, and the crossover effect was fascinatingly invoked with the group's version of Donny Hathaway 's "This Christmas" and the traditional carol "What Child Is This?" But Primus displayed his full control of the horn during his solo on "Silent Night," and with utilization of circular breathing that was in no way a gimmick.”

“Recently, during a Jazz Vespers event at Abyssinian Baptist Church, it was rewarding to hear a mixture of aspiring and established musicians. Most impressionable among the newcomers was alto saxophonist Brandon Primus. Not only does he possess powerful chops and a mastery of circular breathing to good effect, he is also a true student of the music’s history and knows how to present it with integrity and sensitivity.”

“Brandon on Inspiration"The style and flow of my music is heavily influenced by the music of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee Jazz musician Miles Davis and other notable artists such as John Coltrane, Anita Baker, Grover Washington, Jr., and Kenny G. The style of my music is a mix of contemporary and classic jazz with a touch of high energy bebop."”
