Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. J. T. Brown (April 2, 1918 - November 24, 1969) was an American tenor saxophonist of the Chicago blues era. He was variously billed as Saxman Brown, J.T. (Big Boy) Brown and Bep Brown. Born John Thomas Brown in Mississippi, he was a member of the Rabbit Foot Minstrels in the Deep South before heading to Chicago. By 1945, Brown was recording behind Roosevelt Sykes and St. Louis Jimmy Oden, later backing Eddie Boyd and Washboard Sam for RCA Victor. He debuted on record as a bandleader in 1950 on the Harlem record label. Brown, along with Gene Ammons also mentored the, then young, A.C. Reed. Meteor Records issued a couple of singles under Brown's name during the same timeframe. "Round House Boogie" / "Kickin' the Blues Around" was credited to the Bep Brown Orchestra; whilst "Sax-ony Boogie" was listed as by Saxman Brown and its b-side, the vocal "Dumb Woman Blues," as by J.T. (Big Boy) Brown.show more
