Berks Jazz Fest 2013: Gerald Albright & Norman Brown

At 10pm, we got two of our favorite players, saxophonist Gerald Abright and guitarist Norman Brown, doing a show together to promote their current release 24/7 which they were finally able to realize after more than 30 years of friendship. Better late than never, one may argue, so those two players were warmly welcomed, they kicked off their show with both artists playing, before Norman Brown took over the spotlight with "West Coast Cooling" featuring his Wes- and Benson-inclined playing, before Gerald Albright came out to do his classic "Bermuda Nights", then they did their current single "In The Moment" featuring both players. Things slowed down with Gerald Albright playing some of his most revered covers in the form of "So Amazing" and "My, My, My", both done in the inimitable Albright style. Norman Brown came back to do the tiltle track from his After The Storm album, later they did "Bueno Amigos" from the 24/7 release, then Gerald Albright did his rendition of "Georgia On My Mind" complete with blues guitar from Norman Brown, after that they funked up things again with each band member getting a solo spot, plus gave an encore, finishing a great show.
