Go to [Bobby Hutton UK] for more information on BH.Bobby's concept on this CD is to show the jazz, background that has kept him in the music business his ability to sing jazz, and classic standards, as well as r&b, gave him longevity.For those years without a record deal singing in Hotels, Clubs, Casinos, and private functions have kept him busy.And learning a whole lot of songs he had to sing every bodies songs except his own that's what drove him back to recording.He has a lot of unreleased songs already recorded in 80's.
These are the Labels he's been on Motown to Chess to Phillips, to ABC Dunhill.And now producing himself, feels the R&B market has been huge for him realizing, steppers music considered to be grown folks music is r&b, for without jazz, r&b, contemporary, etc.he would not be complete as a artist.
