Norm Stockton Releases “Grooves & Sushi” Album and Deluxe Edition Set
Back in 2019, bass guru Norm Stockton launched a web series called “Grooves & Sushi” in which he called top-shelf musicians to make music and commune over a meal. The show recently wrapped its first season, and now the project has been released as an album as well as a Deluxe Edition USB version.
The 12 songs in the collection are all original, minus a take on Justin Timberlake’s “Mirrors”. Each episode of Grooves & Sushi showed the making of a song with guests including Gregg Bissonette (Ringo Starr/David Lee Roth), Eddie Brown (Stevie Wonder/Beyoncé), Chris Coleman (Prince/Beck), Mark Lettieri (Snarky Puppy), Brandyn Phillips (Ariana Grande), Brian Willett (OneRepublic), Zoro (Lenny Kravitz), and more.
The CD version of Grooves & Sushi contains only the music, while the Deluxe Edition comes with a plethora of goodies. The 32GB USB drive contains all 12 episodes of Grooves & Sushi in HD video, 12 full-song performances in HD, all four of Stockton’s Grooving for Heaven instructional DVD programs, all three of his albums as a leader (Grooves & Sushi, Tea in the Typhoon, Pondering the Sushi), and special features of his gear rundown and sushi hang outtakes.
Check out the incredible season finale with episode twelve, featuring the song “ Normenclature”:
Grooves & Sushi is available now on CD and Deluxe Edition through Stockton’s website.
