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.

Growing up as the ever consummate musician, Norman Connors saw a lot of stars along the way whether mentors, idols, or strong inspirations that just fueled his love for jazz and soul. The Philadelphia native picked up his first set of drumsticks at age five while picking up a keen ear for composing
Remembering his affection for sweet soul music, his musical direction shifted to a jazz/R&B hybrid after his first four recordings. When not behind his drum kit, Connors became more active in realizing future R&B star's dreams as a mentor and producer to many vocal soul stars in the making. Phyllis Hyman, Jean Carne, & Michael Henderson (also a former bass guitarist for Miles Davis) and guitarist Norman Brown were just a few of what Connors dubbed the Starship family, named after his trademark smash from 1976 - You Are My Starship. Connors produced a stream of recordings in the seventies before slowing down with intermittent contributions since.
