Norman Brown & Deniece Williams Revisit Her Classic Single Free

Guitarist and singer Norman Brown has linked with Deniece Williams to revisit her 1976 hit “Free.” Their new version is from Brown’s forthcoming album The Highest Act Of Love. The contemporary jazz star who started his career in the ’90s after being discovered by Norman Connors is ready for the release of his 11th studio album. Brown’s guitar adds another layer of tranquility to “Free” and it is a welcome surprise to hear Williams in 2019. Brown’s jazz influence from Wes Montgomery was his starting point in music but he never fell for the jazz purist arguments. His music has had elements of pop, R&B and blues. Brown says, 

“My blending and crossing of styles happens organically by allowing the content to reveal its elements. There are only two kinds of music –  ‘good and bad.'”
Brown’s The Highest Act Of Love comes out February 22nd.
