After 40 years in the music biz, working with everyone from Smokey to Aretha to Ray Charles, and after 30 years of watching this guy, all I can tell you is that he’s one of the finest song stylists working in jazz today. But it doesn't stop there. He's also one of the finest Soul and R & B stylists I've ever heard and an amazing entertainer. The guy's the complete package. And it's not even remotely hype to mention him in the same sentence with the great Lou Rawls and the amazing Donny Hathaway.
