The Pulse of Entertainment: Jazz Guitarist Norman Brown Releases ‘Anything' Single, Off ‘It Hits Different' Album on Shanachie


 (April 12, 2024) - "Everyday is a new day," said Grammy winning Jazz guitarist Norman Brown about the meaning to the title of his new album "It Hits Different" (Shanachie Entertainment).

Norman was promoting the project's single "Anything." This is the icon's 14th album. The "It Hits Different" project offer 11 selections. The project features assistance from Lil; John Roberts (Mary J Blige) on drums, Tom Schuman (Spyro Gyra) on keyboards, James Champion on vocals, and Wirlie Morris as co-writer/vocals.

"You have to step into the new groove," Norman said about what to expect from the new album. "It features Wirlie Morris, he writes, produces, and has a beautiful voice. He has worked with Charlie Wilson."


"I did want to create the musical essence of love," said the Jazz legend.

Norman told me he would normally sing, but he was getting over being sick and had to bring in others to be his vocals.

"I've done it before (sing)," Norman Brown said about singing now and then on this project. "I want it to be consistent. My manager didn't know what to do with my vocals."

The Kansas city raised Atlanta based guitarist has worked for the best of the best, which includes Paul Brown, Michael McDonald, Kirk Whalum, Rick Braun, Gerald Albright, George Benson, Brian McKnight, Dave Koz, Peabo Bryson, and Chante Moore.
