“A culmination of Jimi Hendrix and George Benson, with some Wes Montgomery thrown in.” —JazzTimes

The joy that emanates from guitarist Norman Brown is palpable — the guitar is simply an extension of the man. A musician’s musician, he has collaborated with George Benson, Brian McKnight, Kirk Whalum, Miki Howard, Jeff Lorber, Gerald Albright, Rick Braun, Chanté Moore, Peabo Bryson and many more over the past three decades. Brown’s many accolades include a Grammy Award and a Soul Train Music Award.

Grammy-nominated jazz artist Gerald Albright has established himself as the consummate session and touring musician on both saxophone and bass. The Los Angeles native has worked with Anita Baker, Ray Parker Jr., Atlantic Starr, The Temptations, Maurice White, Les McCann, Teena Marie, Patrice Rushen, The Winans, Phil Collins and Whitney Houston.

“Top to bottom,” Albright says. “Whether in concert, listening to my music over the radio or CD player, I always want my listeners to be taken on a musical journey with different textures, rhythms, chord progressions and moods.”

Albright has also appeared on many television programs, such as A Different World, and numerous jazz segments for Black Entertainment Television. He was one of 10 saxophonists to perform at the inauguration of President Bill Clinton. In September 2021 Albright received the Presidential Lifetime Achievement Award from President Joseph R. Biden.
