Ayo Brame

Aug 11, Sunday - 6pm
Hammer4 Stage

An SJZ Jazz Aid Fund artist who sold out his New Works Fest show this March, Ayo Brame has reached a mastery of the jazz idiom at the age of 16 that musicians twice his age can only dream of. A gifted and technical improviser, Ayo’s shy off-stage presence belies ferocious ambition.

Ayo Brame is an up and coming tenor saxophone jazz musician out of Oakland. A student of the Oakland School for the Arts, he is trained by jazz great Richard Howell by way of Oaktown Jazz Workshops. He considers himself a purist when it comes to jazz as he channels late greats such as John Coltrane and Wayne Shorter. Embraced by the jazz community, he has been very lucky in acquiring additional mentors such as Kev Choice, Howard Wiley, Terrace Martin, Keyon Harrold, Stacy Dillard and Marcus Shelby. This year he is touring in the United States, Brazil and Cuba. In addition to the tenor saxophone, he also plays the soprano & alto saxophones, clarinet, EWI, bass guitar and drums. He composes and arranges music and is currently recording his debut album entitled “Oakland in My Soul!” He plans to study music in New York after he graduates high school. The future is bright for Ayo as he lights up the Next Gen Stage and the Hammer4 Stage at Summer Fest 2024.
