Grammy-nominated Norman Brown releases new solo album ‘Let’s Get Away.’

*“We’ve all been locked down for quite some time and I thought it would be wonderful to remind us of the silver linings of life’s obstacles…it will get better,” said Jazz guitarist Norman Brown about the meaning of the title to his newest solo album “Let’s Get Away,” on Shanachie Entertainment. “‘We’ will get better.”

The “Let’s Get Away” project offers 10 tracks from the Grammy-nominated musician. It features assistance from Shane Theriot on keyboards, bass, rhythm guitar and drums; Gerald McCauley on keys and drums; Joe Wolfe on bass; James Champion on vocals; Willie Morris on vocals, keys, bass and drums; Ron King on trumpet; Gordon Campbell on drums; Lenny Castro on percussion; David Torkanowsky on keys; Jeff Carruthers on keys, bass and drums; Greg Wail on sax; Paul Brown on percussion, and Lew Laing on bass, keys and drums. It is produced by Paul Brown, mastered by Euge Groove and executive produced by Danny Weiss.

“I haven’t been playing in concert for 1 ½ years,” Norman said when I asked about performing after the pandemic. “It’s the first time ever that this has happened in 33 plus years! It was wonderful to have that time off, a blessing in disguise because I was forever back and forth between doing shows.”
