Brooklyn Rocks - Music This Weekend

Highlights from the Brooklyn music scene this weekend.

Jazz + Hip Hop
Brooklyn resident, Maurice Brown, the talented trumpeter is playing this Saturday at Rose Live Music in Williamsburg. The prolific jazz man is teaming up with keyboardist/producer Sam Barsh on a new project called Lose Your Mind. If you haven't heard Maurice play, you're missing out on the most exciting jazz show of our times.
345 Grand Street (between Havemeyer and Marcy) 10pm $3.00

Finger Styling Guitar
J.D. Wood, Brooklyn resident and all-around good guy, is playing this Saturday, 5 April 2008 at Sidewalk Cafe in Manhattan. Jeff plays the standup bass with a host of talented guys and this time it's acoustic ballads and blues with Lenny Molotov, Jake Engel and Karl Meyer. If you ever lived in Seattle, you probably know JD Wood and rocked out to his music.

Japan's No. 1 B-Boy
The King is coming!!! DJ Muro, the King of Diggin is coming from Japan! This First Saturday at the Brooklyn Museum , DJ Muro is playing the dance party at 10pm 9PM. Years ago, our friend Pooky let me borrow a few of his King of Diggin cassettes. I listened to them for years! I still listen to them now - yes I pull out my Walkman and pop in those puppies. Well, everyone from Ghostface to U-God to Kool G Rap praise DJ Muro. He also plays the best rare groove East of London. And it's FREE!
