Musician, Songwriter. An acclaimed Grammy Award-winning, R&B vocalist, he is remembered for his collaborations with Quincy Jones and scored hits with the singles "Just Once" (1981) and "One Hundred Ways" (1982). A self-taught pianist, he joined the ensemble "Revelation Funk", at the age of seventeen, and enjoyed success with the single "Time is on Our Side" (1975), which was featured in the picture "Dolemite" (1975).
