Dee Brown

DEE BROWN Honeycomb Innervision Records

 Detroit-based guitarist dee Brown hits the Smooth Jazz sweet spot again with his brand new, smoothly groovin’ single, “Honeycomb,” from the forthcoming BROWN SUGAR, HONEY-COATED LOVE. This track features dee’s signature tasty jazz guitar work from the Wes Montgomery/George Benson school, always jazzy, funky, inspirational! “Honeycomb” is a feel-good musical conversation between guitar and sax and sounds like another guaranteed hit to my ears, and what’s more is that it’s a delicious tease of what’s to come on the full cd release, his debut on Innervision.
