This week before we get to the very latest Smooth Jazz releases, I would like to play for you a song with a story that brought the house down at the recent April Seabreeze Smooth Jazz Festival in Panama City Beach, Florida.
This festival for many artists idled by the pandemic was their first chance in over a year to play for live audiences as our world begins to re-open. That performance at Seabreeze was from guitarist Norman Brown, an artist that last week saw his song Just Groovin rise to number one on Billboard. We will soon see in the middle of our first hour if Just Groovin’ remains Billboard’s number one song. At Seabreeze Norman brought new meaning to one of his old songs. Before performing he gave a well received, very emotional appeal to the audience for us to do what is required to get out of this pandemic together and to do the right thing. His first song played for festival goers had an updated meaning in the pandemic era and thrilled the audience. Looking for the light at the end of the tunnel Norman Brown performed After The Storm.
Thank you for your support of this program and KKRN.
