Lost Gem: Howard Hewett and Antoinette helped Norman Connors ballad

Share this article

    As a musician and producer, Norman Connors helped define the Quiet Storm music via his sterling work of the 1970s and 80s. He was a go-to producer for artists such as Phyllis Hyman, Angela Bofill and Jean Carne, and his own albums became late night favorites for both R&B and jazz fans.

    One of the great talents Connors has shown has been his ability to attract talented singers into his projects. And that continued on his rather unheralded 2009 album on Shanachie Records, Star Power. One of our favorite songs from that disc was a smooth late night ballad featuring the vocal talents of the great Howard Hewett and then-newcomer Antoinette. The two singer blend beautifully and give the song a classy vibe.
