“Brandon has a fiery, intense yet lyrical and fluid style reminiscent of Freddie Hubbard. He plays blazes of short, repeated, melodically complex riffs that grow in intensity, but he also blows longer, sweet melodic lines reminiscent of Clifford Brown.” – Mitch Mirkin, Baltimore Jazz Alliance
An alumnus of the Baltimore School for the Arts and Peabody Youth Orchestra, 25-year old Woody built his chops partly through playing classical works, winning concerto competitions along the way. After stints at the Brubeck Institute and Manhattan School of Music, he returned to Baltimore in 2018.The east Baltimore trumpeter brings his band UPENDO to the Takoma Station stage, featuring imaginative improvisation and a wide spectrum of musical styles.
Brandon has been praised as “one of the top young performing artists in the region” by the Baltimore Sun and has performed with such jazz luminaries as Danilo Perez, Terri Lyne Carrington, John Pattituci and others and at such venues as Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, Monterey Jazz Festival and Bohemian Caverns. Brandon has also collaborated and recorded with several different rappers and singers all over the east coast, including Solange, Miranda Curtis, Sophie Marks, Emma Vie, Neptune and Victoria Canal.
