Abstract:

Entertainer, music composer, and poet Oscar Brown, Jr., was born on October 10, 1926, in Chicago, Illinois. As an aspiring young playwright in 1960, Brown made an unprecedented two-hour appearance on NBC debuting the play he had written, Kicks & Company. Though the play never made it to Broadway, Brown had arrived. He began sharing the stage with such greats as Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, John Coltrane, Nancy Wilson and Cannonball Adderly. His London-based, two-hour, one-man show, "Oscar Brown, Jr. Entertains," led him to be hailed as a musical genius. He also made headlines with a project that worked effectively with local gang members, done in conjunction with his performance partner and wife, Jean Pace. Among their many discoveries were the Jackson Five. Brown composed several hundred songs and more than a dozen full-length feature pieces during his forty-year career. Oscar Brown, Jr. passed away on May 29, 2005 at age 78.
