Brian (* 1936 in London) is a jazz pianist and former musical director. Brian came to prominence in 1959, playing at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club in London. At that time he was playing with Lennie Best, Dave Morse and Vic Ash. He later joined the Jazz Five and played opposite Miles Davis on a nationwide tour and was voted Melody Maker's 'New Star of 1960'. He also appeared at the Establishment Club in 1962 where his trio played opposite Dudley Moore.
Throughout an uninterrupted career, Brian has played with many jazz musicians, including Ben Webster, Zoot Sims, Al Cohn, Benny Carter, Harry "Sweets" Edison, Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis, Chet Baker, Al Grey, Sonny Stitt, Victor Feldman and Joe Newman.
From the late 1960s onwards, Brian was in demand as a session musician, appearing on many orchestral recordings. Subsequently, he went on to play with the Ted Heath orchestra, for the last 10 years of its existence under the direction of the late Don Lusher. Brian was also a member of Laurie Johnson's London Big Band.
Renowned as a fine accompanist to singers, Brian has recorded or appeared alongside Bing Crosby, Fred Astaire, Johnny Mercer, Elton John (Brian played organ and/or harmonium on four of John's early albums), Peggy Lee, Frankie Laine, Joe Williams, Jimmy Witherspoon, Mark Murphy, Cleo Laine and Annie Ross. He was also musical director to Lita Roza, Cilla Black, Rosemary Squires, and Elaine Delmar.
