about THE CBC
The Charles Brooks Collective is Baton Rouge's explosive newest experimental jazz-fusion group known for their modern improvisatory techniques and their mind-blowing performance experiences. Influenced by musical greats like Herbie Hancock, the late Miles Davis, The Weather Report, Jimi Hendrix, and Pat Methany, the Collective's modern improvisatory techniques combine with traditional jazz harmonies as melodies fuse with modern rhythmic application influenced by world music, thereby taking audiences on quite the experiential journey with their eclectic celebration of music.
Each musician playing a classically trained musician and The Collective is lead by Dr. Charles Brooks on the vibraphone.
The Collective's debut show took place in February 2017 at Dyson House Listening Room to a nearly sold-out crowd. The experience they provided was so well received that they were approached about doing two Pink Floyd WISH YOU WERE HERE tribute shows, the first of which sold out on July 8, 2017, at Dyson House Listening Room. In the meantime, be sure to like their FACEBOOK page @TheCharlesBrooksCollective, where we'll be updating event listings with dates and places you can catch The Collective.
The Collective's next (and last Louisiana) show will be Friday, May 28 at Chorum Hall and will feature two special guest musicians from the Nashville area. Ticket information will be posted soon!
