Jazzy nights in the D

We welcomed Grammy Award-winning jazz guitarist Norman Brown, who is performing tonight at Chene Park as part of the Jazzy Nights concert series. 

Brown has sold nearly 2 million albums and has a way with his guitar. Brown has been playing guitar since he was 8 years old, when he was inspired by his brother who also played. He has worked with some great musical legends, including Stevie Wonder and Boys II Men.

We asked Brown what his experience was like working with such big names in the industry Brown said, "It was wonderful, it was my introduction into the business, my first album on Motown." Brown also attributes some of his inspiration to Jimi Hendrix. 

Brown's new CD "Let it Go," is from the Egyptian theme "sacrifice the lesser for the greater."  The CD features many popular tracks like ''That's the way Love Goes,''  ''Things are Gonna Get Easier,'' ''Man in the Mirror'' and more. 

Norman Brown will be at Chene Park Wednesday at 7:30pm.
