Herb Alpert: “You hear three notes and you know it’s Herb Alpert” said MilesDavis in 1989; “He gets right to the point of what he’s playing,” remarkedWynton Marsalis more recently, “very melodic and nothing extraneous.”

Lush Lives : Lee Wiley occupies her own place in jazz history. Although a cool-toned and sophisticated singer, her interpretations of superior standards were often quite sensuous and, even if she did not improvise much, she was a favorite of many musicians, particularly Eddie Condon.

IMDB : Pery Ribeiro is a multi-faceted artist, for besides being a great singer he’s also a flutist, a composer and an actor, having participated in many productions such as: “It’s All True”, when he was still a child, written and directed by none other than Orson Welles

Soulwalking : David Ruffin was becoming recognised as the lead vocalist within the group (The Temptations). Motown, however, felt that some of his behaviour left a little to be desired and he lost the outright lead singer status by 1968.

Solid! : Her sisters’ marriages eventually broke up the act, and Jo Stafford found work with a newly-formed vocal group, the Pied Pipers. The octet’s stylish harmonies proved popular, and they began to perform on local radio and on Hollywood soundtracks.

Little Milton : Chess carried Little Milton from southern blues circuit fame to the national spotlight and to white audiences. Milton’s recordings realized only moderate chart success, until he cut We’re Gonna Make It, which hit No. 1 on Billboard magazines R&B singles chart in 1965.

Down To The Bone : Down To The Bone’s groove gets harder, funkier and juicier. As founder and producer of the band, Stuart Wade states that ‘it’s all about the groove….that is what gets people dancing, their toes tapping and their heads nodding.’

Tower Of Power : In 1968 Emilio Castillo met Stephen “Doc” Kupka in July of that year. When Doc auditioned during a band rehearsal at Emilio’s house, Emilio’s father called him into the kitchen and offered the following advice: “Hire that guy, he’s got something.”
