Tony Award-winning composer-lyricist Jason Robert Brown will make an in-store appearance November 28 at 7 PM at the Upper East Side Barnes and Noble to promote the release of his new album How We React and How We Recover. Brown will perform selections from the album and sit down for a conversation with Jamie Bernstein as part of the event.
The Ghostlight Records album is currently 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.
