Album Review

In the mid-'90s, Mojazz — the contemporary jazz imprint of Motown — was the place to turn for the best examples of the ways funk meets more creative improvisations. Norman Brown is one of the genre's brightest lights — a George Benson type whose stirring fluidity makes magic with an edge Benson never had. Many of the tracks on After the Storm are formulaic, mid-tempo gems, but Brown adds zest to even the most typical groove with a lightning fast style that jumps off the disc. The Janet Jackson and Luther Vandross covers are fine, but better are more unique originals like "Trashman," "Take Me There," and others that use acoustic guitar and trumpet. As solid as this stuff gets.

This is as Good As It Gets

This is simply a wonderful guitar record with melodies that sing. Norman Brown is one of the best in the Biz. His guitar playing is far from simple with such expression and emotion. I also like Marc Antoine, Shane Isenberg and Chuck Loeb.

After The Storm

I knew I like this guys music years ago but wasn't sure what I'd heard. I bought the first two songs After the Storm and Take Me There thinking I liked them. Then after playing them all the way through I was thrilled, As they were much better than the samples. I'm going to get more tracks from this guy. I think Trashman will be next.

Guitarist Norman Brown splashed into the soul-jazz scene in 1992 as a recording artist for Mo Jazz and quickly went on to win substantial acclaim, beginning with his award-winning second album, After the Storm. Both Gavin and Soul Train named it Jazz Album of the Year, and After the Storm remained on the charts for over two years. Suddenly critics drew comparisons to other astonishing jazz guitarists from the past such as George Benson and Wes Montgomery, and Brown became the toast of the soul-jazz...
