Grammy Award winner Norman Brown is on close intimate terms with his audience. For almost two decades, it has been an engaging, mutually rewarding relationship, with the guitarist, composer and singer offering tasty sonic tidbits of classic R&B and contemporary jazz and his fans melting into satisfied aural bliss with every succulent, jazz inflected note. Born in Shreveport, Louisiana, and raised in Kansas City, Norman first picked up a guitar at the age of 8. Inspired by Jimi Hendrix’s mind-bending rock sounds, he soon discovered his father’s favorite artist, Wes Montgomery, and found his stylistic holy grail. After high school, Brown moved to Los Angeles to pursue his musical career, attending the Musicians Institute where he also taught for a time. While playing with his band in local clubs, Brown was discovered and signed to the MoJazz label, a division of Motown. He delivered his 1992 debut “Just Between Us” and followed with a lot of other CDs on different labels. “Celebration” was the release, which first teamed him with producer Paul Brown. The 2003 follow-up “Just Chillin’” earned Norman much-deserved recognition with a Grammy Award in the best pop instrumental category.
