Grammy Award-winning trumpet player Maurice “Mobetta” Brown unites with Rawkus veteran emcee Talib Kweli in a jazzy call for humanity. Stand Up is taken from Mo’s new solo-album, The Mood, which is released today and features his live band in a studio album that showcases his soulful composition & adventurous improvisations in a blend of jazz, hip hop, soul and sounds from around the world.

We are in a political and economic climate that has been sapping the energy and sense of hope from everyone around us. Inspired by the advice that my father gave me when I was a kid (stand for something or you’ll fall for anything), I want to call people to come together, take a stand for a better life & a better world and help one another in whatever way possible, big or small. To collectively be the change we wish to see in the world.

Maurice Brown
