International jazz trumpet luminary BROWNMAN journeys to Luna in San Pedro for special New Years' Eve performance

MANGO JAM with special guest BROWNMAN [ ]

Luna Restaurant @ Journey's End Resort, San Pedro [ ]

Dec. 31, 2005

Dinner reservations ONLY - call 226-2173

6:00pm dinner, music all night!

Journey's End Resort is honoured to present internationally-acclaimed, Trindad & Tobago born, New York City & Toronto based jazz trumpet icon BROWNMAN as a special guest with Belize's finest jazz ensemble MANGO JAM; for a historic New Year's celebration at its spectacular new Luna waterfront restaurant.

"It is a true honour for us to have Brownman as our distinguished musical guest at Luna for New Year's Eve," says Ruben Munoz, General Manager of Journey's End Resort. "San Pedro has been blessed to hear so much of his music this holiday season and we couldn't resist an opportunity to showcase his world-class skills and energy here under the stars at Luna."

Recently featured at the 1st Annual San Pedro International Jazz Festival as part of his Latin American tour, Brownman was the only performer to illicit not one, but two standing ovations from attendees after an encore was demanded of this energized trumpeter. This Latin American segment of the tour began in early Dec where his ground-breaking latin-jazz-urban ensemble CRUZAO would headline the Havana Jazz Festival in Cuba and continue on through Mexico, Honduras, Nicaragua and now Belize.

"My manager was juggling a lot of other gig offers from Toronto and New York, but truthfully - I really wanted to stay in Belize a little longer. The people have been so gracious and giving and I have never seen water so blue before. There's no better way than to show my gratitude to San Pedro and Journey's End for all the hospitality they have extended than this special New Year's performance with the Mango Jam crew." says Brownman. "That's the only good thing about touring without my regular band - I get to meet new local artists and see all the musical gifts they have to offer from their native lands. What artist wouldn't dig that?".


Born 'Nick Ali' on the small Caribbean island of Trinidad, this young multi-award winning jazz improvisor is internationally considered to be Canada's modern-day descendant of the trumpet visionaries Randy Brecker (the multiple Grammy award-winning legend and Brownman's New York City teacher) and Miles Davis. Tireless leader of no less than 8 diverse ensembles in Toronto, where he's now based after much NYC training, he already has over 150 CD recording credits as a bandleader, sideman, featured soloist, composer and arranger and is Canada's top trumpet call in these various roles. The long list of greats with whom Brownman has shared the stage includes: Wayne Shorter, Randy Brecker, Chucho Valdes & IRAKERE, John Scofield, Roy Hargrove, Charlie Hunter, Gary Bartz, and SOULIVE. He is currently signed to the prestigious Canadian jazz label JUSTIN TIME RECORDS and is regarded as Canada's preeminent jazz trumpeter.

It was a great pleasure to meet and listen to Brownman at the recent San Pedro Jazz Fest. An incrediably amiable and gifted young performer. It would be worth going along way to hear such talent here on Ambergris Caye.

Gone fishing!!
