Sometimes known as a jazz singer, sometimes known as an R&B singer, Arthur Prysock was immediately recognizable for his golden throaty baritone voice reminiscent of the great Billy Eckstein. Prysock fronted big bands throughout the 1940’s, went solo in 1952 and enjoyed great success for four decades – both on recordings and in live performance. Presented here is his classic 1978 album of R&B, pop and jazz standards “Here’s To Good Friends.” All selections newly remastered.
Primarily known as a jazz singer with a distinctive baritone, vocalist Arthur Prysock began his career in 1944 as a vocalist in Buddy Johnson’s band and sang on several of Johnson’s hits. In 1952 Prysock went solo and scored a big R&B hit with "I Didn’t Sleep a Wink Last Night.” Over the years Prysock switched easily between jazz and R&B and in the mid-1960’s was recording with the Count Basie band. In the 1970’s, Prysock had a surprise disco hit with "When Love Is New." His brother, Red Prysock, the noted tenor sax player, appeared on many of Arthur's records. Presented here is Arthur’s rare, soul / disco album “Arthur Prysock Does It Again!,” originally released in 1977. All selections newly remastered.

Cromer's a lot more relaxed and less posturing than either of those bigger names – and he's got a great setting here, with small combo backing from a group that features Hubert Laws on flute, Chick Corea on piano, Richard Davis on bass, and Bruno Carr on drums! The set's a jazz one at heart, but has some soulful undercurrents too.
