American blues guitarist and pianist, born October 7, 1939, in Jackson, Miss., USA., died March 20, 2009 in Kitchener, Ont., Canada.

Mel Brown had a very own style of playing guitar. In the 60s his style was more jazzy, so he was one of the only blues artists to sign with the jazz label [l=Impulse!].

He played with [a=Jimmy Witherspoon], [a=T-Bone Walker], [a=John Lee Hooker], [a=B.B. King], to name a few.

In the 70s and 80s he played for 11 years in Bobby "Blue" Bland's Orchestra. In the following period he was around [l=Antone's Records].
