Tony Award-winning composer-lyricist Jason Robert Brown makes an in-store appearance at the Upper East Side Barnes and Noble November 28 at 7 PM to promote his latest album, How We React and How We Recover.
Released earlier this year, How We React and How We Recover features 12 new songs by Brown, a majority of which were written in response to the current political climate.
Brown will sit down with author and filmmaker Jamie Bernstein during the mini-concert featuring material from the album.
The Ghostlight Records album is available for digital download and on streaming platforms. “I grew up on Billy Joel and Joni Mitchell, but also Stephen Sondheim and Leonard Bernstein,” Brown said in a statement. “All those influences sit within the work. This album has a specific emotional palette and musical aesthetic that rests between rock ‘n’ roll, jazz, folk, gospel and Broadway.”
How We React and How We Recover is produced by Jeffrey Lesser and Jason Robert Brown. Stacey Mindich and Kurt Deutsch serve as executive producers.
