Ed Brown’s Auto Shop – Classic Cars Meet The Jazz Orchestra

© -Steven Cerra, copyright protected; all rights reserved.

The editorial staff at JazzProfiles has a great fondness for melding artwork and Jazz.

Such combinations are just another way of having fun with the music.

Painting, sculpture and all forms of illustrative design seem to work well when viewed with a Jazz accompaniment.

Our latest effort in this regard are photographs of the mid-20th century genius that was American automotive design as paired with music performed by The Metropole Orchestra of The Netherlands.

The photographs of these lovingly restored and maintained classic autos were taken at Ed Brown’s Auto Shop in Apollo, PA and as such form a tribute to his talents as a collector and craftsman.

[Incidentally, Ed’s shop is not open to the general public.]

Our thanks to the ace graphics team at CerraJazz LTD and the production group at StudioCerra for their assistance in the preparation of the video.

The music is by The Metropole Orchestra performing Michael Brecker’s Song for Barry.

The trombone solo is by Bart van Lier, Ruud Breuls takes the trumpet solo and Peter Tiehuis closes things out on guitar.

Vince Mendoza conducts the orchestra.
