Fulfilling his dream to become a New York City jazz man, Brian is perhaps best known as Lady Gaga’s jazz bandleader, having most recently collaborated with her and Tony Bennett on the Grammy-nominated album, Cheek to Cheek and joining them on worldwide tour. Brian’s trumpet performance with Gaga was also captured on 2011’s A Very Gaga Holiday EP as well as a special jazz version of Gaga’s hit “You and I”, which she tweeted was inspired by “too many whiskies with Newman”.
A musician’s musician, Brian has been endorsed by leading American audio manufacturer, QSC, and is specially featured on their K for Musicians website touting the company’s active loudspeakers as the perfect solution for accurate sound reproduction of digital sources in a live application, allowing musicians to be more expressive, add nuance and greater dynamics, and produce more creative and inspired live performances.The ultimate embodiment of “old school”, Brian’s interests include classic cars and bikes, vintage tattoo art and New York City history.
