Walker, Jimmy Smith, Johnny Otis, Dr. John, Kenny Burrell, Terence Blanchard, Joe Sample, Cedar Walton, Nancy Wilson, Mel Tormé, Joe Williams, Tony Bennett and Keb’ Mo. Additionally, Morrison has guest starred with the Count Basie Orchestra, The Clayton-Hamilton Orchestra, and Doc Severinsen’s Big Band.
Like the best classic soul singers Sonny Green navigates the gritty, down-home and the seductive smooth crooning approach as the song demands. His barroom philosophizing has been compared to his contemporaries Johnny Taylor, Bobby Patterson, and Little Milton to name just a few. Yes, put Z.Z. Hill in that group too. Some of these are drawn from classic soul hits (I’m So Tired” and “Blind Man”) associated with Bobby “Blue’ Bland, Syl Johnson’s “Back For a Taste of Your Love,”
