RUTH "Miss Rhythm" BROWN was the hit-making queen from 1949 to the end of the 50's to a point that ATLANTIC RECORDS was once called "the house that Ruth built". No less! She was one of the main artists who established New York label's predominance in the R&B field. She was forgotten later -only to come back stronger than ever with a worlwide reputation as R&B pioneer and advocate for the rights and royalties of her peers from her non-profit "Rhythm & Blues Foundation". Inspired by jazz legends Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday and Dinah Washington, Brown's seductive vocal delivery delighted millions on legendary chart-toppers such as "Teardrops in My Eyes", "So Long", "Mambo Baby" and many others. Later, her sharp sense of humor lead her to a TV sitcom and a role on John Waters´ movie "Hairspray", plus a Tony Award for her starring acting in "Black and Blue" at Broadway.

On the aptly titled "Black is Brown and Brown is Beautiful", originally released in 1969, she puts her strong voice to soulful covers of "Yesterday", "Please Send Me Someone to Love" (Mayfield) and own songs such as "Miss Brown's Blues". This material is closer to soul than to jazz, and it is full of joy and, of course, rhythm.
