To hear this compelling, and inspiring interview in it's entirety, Click below.


Saxophonist Kevin Brown travels the world playing jazz. And as for many people, music has been Kevin's companion through the ups and downs of his life.
Kevin was born totally blind, but doctors restored some of his vision when he was 6. He fully used his partial site - even playing football as a kid and teaching himself to play the saxophone. But the day he was hit by a car, Kevin realized the limits of his eye sight. Soon after that, he began to focus more on music.
Kevin talks with Dick Gordon about how jazz revived him when he needed it the most: Kevin lost his eyesight permanently at age 35.

What an amazing, soulful, wonderful, emotional, sweatheart of a guy he is. I am going to the music store after work to buy all the music he has made. You have a way of interviewing that seems to make all the "shyness" (for lack of a better term) of your subjects just melt away. You get into Very personal feelings with these people sometimes. This is my favorite story so far and I listen to you almost every day... Thanks to you and Thanks to Kevin for sharing his amazing and enveloping life story.... and thanks too, to Kevin for playing his music, I am sure it has prompted many people to go on and let go of what was holding them back. What a guy....thanks for introducing him to me..... Always, Julie
