Brewer is known for his passionate and improvisational playing.

of technique.”

“Brewer has a natural, inviting sound that instantly transports you back to the heyday of classic jazz guitar…” writes David Rubien (San Francisco Chronicle feature, March 20, 2007). “(Brewer is) A naturally gifted player with a beautiful, warm tone and a melodic penchant, his playing is eminently pleasing…” penned Bill Milkowski (Jazz Times May 2007).

Andy Gilbert (Contra Costa Times) remarks, “Over the past decade, Brewer has established himself as an accomplished improviser with an exquisite tone. His (Brewer) sound is marked by a balance and maturity often found in much older players. …” while the San Francisco Chronicle included Brewer in a short list of “whom to stalk” in Bay Area jazz in 2007.
