The legacy.

The Johnny Otis Show feat. Barbara Morrison - Hey Boy! I Want Ya´ - Jazz World

70s SoulPosted by Martin Wed, May 27, 2009 08:12:09

Johnny Otis (born John Veliotes) was a multitalented jazz and R&B aficinado who so loved the african-american culture that he changed his name to "blacker" sounding Otis. Discjockey, bandleader, talent scout and Tv-host are some of the things that Otis can put down on his CV.
Here he takes on the, to me, unknown singer Barbara Morrison and creates a nice fusion between jazz and modern soul. Not sure on the exact release date on this but I would guess somewhere around the late seventies.

"Hey Boy! I Want Ya´"
