He has also toured and performed with Nathan Haines, Cherie Mathieson and Caitlin Smith. 

Alan Brown has been involved with the Auckland jazz scene for many years, originally studying under prominent Auckland jazz pianist Phil Broadhurst, and has made a name for himself as one of the few jazz organists around town. He teaches full-time at MAINZ (Music and Audio Institute of NZ), and has tutored at the Jazz school at Massey University. In the early '90s Alan formed the jazz-fusion band Blue Train, which achieved Jazz Album of The Year in 1996 with their second album “No Free Lunch”.
