wikipedia:

Charles Brown (September 13, 1922 – January 21, 1999), born in Texas City, Texas was an American blues singer and pianist whose soft-toned, slow-paced blues-club style influenced the development of blues performance during the 1940s and 1950s. He had several hit recordings, including "Driftin' Blues" and "Merry Christmas Baby".

In the late 1940s a rising demand for blues was driven by an increasing white teenage audience in the South which quickly spread north and west. Blues shouters got the attention, but also greatly influential was what writer Charles Keil dubbs "the postwar Texas clean-up movement in blues" led by stylists such as T-Bone Walker, Amos Milburn and Charles Brown. Their singing was lighter, more relaxed and they worked with bands and combos that had saxophone sections and used arrangements.



Career

As a child Brown demonstrated his love of music and took classical piano lessons. Early on, Brown moved out to Los Angeles, where the great influx of blacks created an integrated nightclub scene in which black performers tended to minimize the rougher blues elements of their style. The blues club style of a light rhythm bass and right-hand tinkling of the piano and smooth vocals became popular, epitomized by the jazz piano of Nat King Cole. When Cole left Los Angeles, California to perform nationally, his place was taken by Johnny Moore's Three Blazers, featuring Charles Brown's gentle piano and vocals.

Brown signed with Aladdin Records and his 1945 recording on that record label of the bestseller, "Driftin' Blues", with a small combo was a typical club blues song. The single was on the U.S. Billboard R&B chart for six months, putting Brown at the forefront of a musical evolution that changed American musical performance. His style dominated the influential Southern California club scene on Central Avenue during that period and he influenced such performers as Floyd Dixon, Cecil Gant, Ivory Joe Hunter, Percy Mayfield, Johnny Ace and Ray Charles.

"Driftin' Blues" was the first of several hits. Brown subsequently released "Get Yourself Another Fool", "Black Night", "Hard Times" and "Trouble Blues", all major hits in the early 1950s on such labels as Modern Records as well as Aladdin. He was unable to compete with the burgeoning rock and roll sound, though he maintained a small and devoted audience.

Brown's approach was too mellow to survive the transition to rock's harsher rhythms, and he faded from the national limelight. His "Please Come Home for Christmas", a hit in 1960 on the King Records remained seasonally popular. "Please Come Home for Christmas" sold over one million copies by 1968, and was awarded a gold disc in that year. During the late 1960s early 1970s he recorded one record for Bob Shad's Mainstream Records. While no longer a hit-maker Charles arranging skills were in demand (BB King) but it was his gambling problems that led him to fall out of sight.

In the 1980s he made a series of appearances at New York's "Tramps." His playing had not lost a thing and word spread rapidly how great these performances were. As a result of these appearances Charles was signed to a deal with a new record label started in NYC by investor Robert M. Rubin, Musician Gary Lucas and Jazz A&R Executive Barry Feldman. Feldman contacted Jazz Historian Dan Morgenstern who suggested that Feldman use Ruth Brown's band consisting of Earl May, Kenny Washington, Harold Ousley and the great guitarist Billy Butler. That was the band that was indeed used. Brown provided all the arrangements and in 3 days recorded "One More For The Road." The setting of this great group, coupled with song selections that suited Brown perfectly, provided him with a new foundation that would frame his great career for the rest of his life. Blueside Records closed soon after as a result of the 1987 market crash. Through a deal with Alligator's Bruce Iglauer the record was kept in print where it remains today in the Alligator catalog.


Soon after the success of "One More For The Road" Bonnie Raitt helped usher in a Charles Brown comeback tour.

He began a recording and performing career again, under the musical direction of guitarist Danny Caron, to greater success than he had achieved since the 1950s. Several records received Grammy Award nominations.

He is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and received both the National Endowment for the Arts' National Heritage Fellowship and the W. C. Handy Award.

Brown died of congestive heart failure in 1999 in Oakland, California, and was interred at Inglewood Park Cemetery, Inglewood, California.

Hallo,
zusammengefasst etwas in deutsch:

Charles Brown * 13. September 1921 in Texas City, + 21. Januar 1999 in Oakland, Blues-Sänger und -Pianist, hätte gemäß seiner frühzeitigen Ausbildung klassischer Pianist werden können. Eine erste Mitgliedschaft in einer Musikband zum Ende der 30er Jahre blieb zunächst eine Episode, denn er arbeitete bis zu einem Ortswechsel 1943 nach Los Angeles als Chemie-Lehrer. Über einen Talentwettbewerb kam er wieder zur Musik.
Seit 1944 war er Mitglied bei Johnny Moore’s Three Blazers. 1948 gründete er mit Eddie Williams-bass und Charles Norris-guitar das Charles Brown Trio. Bereits 1949 stellten sich auf Aladdin Records u.a. mit dem # 1-Hit “Trouble Blues“ große Erfolge ein.
Eine Hit-Serie folgte dann als Charles Brown and his band:

1950 My Baby’s Gone # 6 Aladdin 3051
1951 Black Night # 1 Aladdin 45-3076
1951 I’ll Always Be In Love With You # 7 Aladdin 45-3091
1951 Seven Long Days # 2 Aladdin 45-3092
1952 Hard Times # 7 Aladdin 45-3116
1960 Please Come Home For Christmas # 21 (Pop # 76) King 5405

Weihnachten 1960 kam er erstmals in die Pop-Charts. Mit der King-Single 5405 “Please Come Home For Christmas“ schaffte er # 76.
Mitte der 70er Jahre und zu Anfang der 90er Jahre schaffte er immer wieder landesweit beachtete Comebacks. 1996 wurde er in die Blues Hall of Fame aufgenommen. Die Rock-Größen Ray Charles, Little Richard, Chuck Berry und Fats Domino bezeichneten ihn als ihr großes Vorbild.

Gruß
Dietrich
