It's A Pleasure


Sheree Brown was one of the “Capitol Rare” artists who recorded smooth and gentle uplifting r&b for the label in the early 1980s. A longtime friend of Patrice Rushen, Brown helped to write “Message In The Music” and “Haven’t You Heard.”

Her debut album Straight Ahead featured contributions from some of the scene’s greatest session players like Paul Jackson, Paulinho Da Costa and Steve Khan. Standout cuts on this album are “You’ll Be Dancing All Night,” “Get Down I’m So Bad,” and “It’s A Pleasure.”

The followup album was called The Music and had a guest appearance by Stevie Wonder on “On My Way Home.” “Happy Music” also comes from this record and is one of her most-requested tunes.

Neither of her releases was considered successful enough for Capitol’s taste, and they did not renew her contract. She continued with session work and wrote songs that were included on soundtracks for The Air Up There and Hollywood Shuffle.

In the 2000s, Brown has stayed very busy, working with youth as a teacher and creator of childrens books and compact discs. She has also recorded as a solo artist and in conjunction with Patrice Rushen as the group Sisters Being Positively Real. These albums were released by Brown’s company Brown Baby Entertainment Group.
