They had an enduring friendship.

Norman Connors is an American jazz drummer, composer, arranger, producer, and headliner, who has led some influential jazz and R&B groups. He had some big R&B hits of the day, especially in the area love ballads and songs with a positive statement in both titles and lyrics, including “You Are My Starship”, “Betcha By Golly Wow” featuring Phyllis Hyman and from his last release, entitled “Star Power”, “Rock With You”.
Connors became interested in jazz as a child, and began playing drums early, once sitting in for Elvin Jones at a John Coltrane performance he attended while in middle school. Connors studied music at Temple University and Juilliard; his first recording was on Archie Shepp’s 1967 release, Magic of JuJu. He played with Pharaoh Sanders for the next few years until signing with Cobblestone Records in 1972 and releasing his first record as a bandleader. In the mid-1970s, Connors, although fronting some great jazz recordings with Carlos Garnett, Gary Bartz, Dee Dee Bridgewater and Herbie Hancock, began focusing more on R&B tunes, and had several US hits with songs featuring vocalists such as Michael Henderson, Jean Carn, and Phyllis Hyman. The most successful of these was “You Are My Starship”. Dee Dee Bridgewater also performed with him on the jazz album “Love from the Sun”. His more recent work, “Star Power”, has seen him operating more in the vein of smooth jazz and urban crossover music featuring Howard Hewett, Bobby Lyle, Ray Parker, Jr, Peabo Bryson, Michael Henderson, and Antoinette.

Nick Wolny loves generating and planning creative solutions, which is why he pursued classical music performance at Rice University and with mentors of Juilliard. That said, something was missing in his music career. He found empowering people face-to-face (and encouraging interaction) more satisfying than performing from a stage. So he took a break, pursued teaching yoga, and built out the community relations program in Houston for grassroots-focused retailer lululemon athletica.
Nick teaches a mindful, intentional vinyasa designed to elicit depth and self-inquiry in your practice. He recently founded philanthropyLIVE, a set of consulting services designed to help people with big ideas commingle for charity. For more information, check out www.philanthropylive.com.
