He was already a star with Duke Ellington when his solo career took off in the 50’s. One of the first blind singers to gain acceptance. Sixteen tracks that will have you convinced he was one of the best baritones of the era.
Highlights include: “He”, “Unchained Melody”, “11th Hour Melody” and ” Don’t Get Around Much Anymore.”
I'm a big fan of vintage books,movies,TV shows and music. I encourage everyone to patronize your local used book/record store and pick up some of the good stuff. My posts are capsule reviews of some favorites that you may want to investigate. The albums posted aren't really reviews but items from my collection that are still available. I try and point out highlights of each one and let the music speak for itself.
Thanks to all for checking out the blog.
