The jazz singer could belt it out. His music wasn't for everyone, but man what a voice.
Had no idea he was 76. RIP, enjoyed his singing on the radio I guess was in the 80's ?
As a smooth jazz fan, it was sad to read about this news a few days ago. He had a distinctive quality in his vocals that just made everyone listening feel joyful. 'Mornin' is my favorite of his.
That's probably my favorite of his too. Right up there are Breakin' Away, Moonlighting, We're In This Love Together, & Roof Garden.
