Product Description Review

An obvious admirer of George Benson, guitarist Norman Brown is a skilled performer who is probably playing a notch or two below his abilities in order to win broader acceptance as a smooth-jazz artist. Still, he injects enough individuality and fret-board flair into this 53-minute, music-for-your-moods package to distinguish himself as an inventive player who can add some soulful panache to the format. Brown's selections (nine of the 11 are originals) are pleasantly engaging, with roughly half of them targeted at the patio, the others designed for the bedroom. Three tracks, one a languid remake of "You Make Me Feel Brand New", include vocals, yet Brown is more memorable as a guitarist. His nimble technique is showcased most convincingly on the breezy title track, the opening "Out'a Nowhere"; the thoughtful Jaco Pastorius piece "Rain"; and a very Benson-like "Getting By". Anyone searching for a light-jazz album that can nicely complement an easy afternoon or sultry sunset should give this disk some consideration. --Terry Wood

I don't know how I missed this album when it was first released. A fantastic mix of soulful funk and jazz by such a multi-talented musician. A great celebration of classy music and a must for any Norman Brown fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Talent Isn't Always Out'a Nowhere 2 Oct 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Audio CD
When I first heard the song "After The Storm" by Norman Brown, I was confounded as to how a jazz song could song so good. Ever since I've been sampling Norman's music at CDNOW, and I've went out and got Celebration. In my opinion, a few tracks alone can make this album a convincing buy. "Together At Last" is a song that is suitable for driving on the road or relaxing to. It's has a mellow (very cliche) vibe. "Celebration" is a notch above smooth jazz, it's a subtle groove number with a keen guitar bridge/breakdown toward the end. And also, there's a unique twist on the SWV original "Rain." Personally, I think Norman Brown is one of the best contemporary guitarists of the decade. If the aforementioned songs weren't included, it wouldn't totally affect the overall value of the album, it would still be a good thing to put into your walkman/cd player any time of the day. This is probably Norman Brown's best album to date.

By Tony_Tone - Published on

This is smooth Jazz at it's very finest.. I have no idea what the reviewers that rated this a one star listen to .. His style is very similiar to George Benson.. that what turned me on to him in the first place a few years ago.. There are more vocal tracks on this effort then his previous efforts He's does a very nice job on two rnb tracks

5.0 out of 5 stars "BEST JAZZ GUITAR CD TO DATE" 12 Sep 2002
By Paul Roseboro - Published on
Format:Audio CD
When I first heard Norman Brown's single "That's The Way Love Goes" on a jazz radio station I called the station instantly before the song could finished and asked for the artist name and cd title which was "After The Storm", I went and bought the cd the very same day and have been a fan ever since. I was not only impress with his playing but with the song arrangements and the feelings he was delivering so sincerely. He sounded like George Benson playing at his best. Two weeks later I was at a car wash when a Lincoln Navigator pulls up beside me blasting the most incredible jazz guitar playing, I asked for the name of the cd and deja vu!! "Celebration" by Norman Brown. With out a doubt he has picked up the reign of jazz guitarist that was once ruled so many years by the great Wes Montgomery and George Benson.

4.0 out of 5 stars One Smooth Groove 24 April 2000
By Darrell Harrison - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This CD was my first exposure to Norman Brown, and I must say that I was pleasantly surprised. My favorite track is number 6, 'Gettin' By'. It's the type of song that makes you wanna just close your eyes and nod your head back and forth. I love the way the song blends reggae-influenced percussion with smooth guitar and dominant bass lines. At certain points throughout the CD, Norman's style recalls flashes of Earl Klugh and George Benson, and yet, his style remains quite distinctive in it's own right. I definitely recommend this CD to all contemporary jazz lovers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Darn Good! 2 Feb 2000
By stanley c horton - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I thought that Norman Brown would never top the "After the Storm" CD but I tell you, this comes mighty close to it. The remake of SWV's "Rain" is totally AWESOME, plus the 1'st two songs "Out'a Nowhere" & "Together at Last". I personally don't think he gets the respect he rightfully deserves from the industry but as they say, there's a time for everything but I feel like his time is coming close to being overdue.
