Liner Notes by Alex Henderson
Mention the name Norman Connors to fans of classic 1970s soul, and they immediately think of R&B hits such as “You Are My Starship,” “Valentine Love” and “We Both Need Each Other.” They think of Connors putting R&B singers like Michael Henderson and the late Phyllis Hyman on the map, and they think of the Philadelphia native as an R&B-oriented drummer/arranger who made soul, funk, disco and quiet storm recordings and perhaps recorded a jazz instrumental here and there if he felt like it. But early in his career, Connors was not an R&B-oriented artist who offered a little jazz on the side. He was a hardcore jazz drummer and an instrumentalist who came from the city that gave us Philly Joe Jones, Mickey Roker, Bobby Durham and other first-class jazz drummers.
