Nocturne Hollywood - 1969
The jacket notes indicate that Steve got around although I can't find hide nor hair of him on the internet. Apparently he toured with The Everly Brothers as a comic. He went on to become "a sensation at Hawaii's Queen Surf Hotel" and then he moved on to Los Vegas to play The Riviera amongst other well known clubs as a lounge act.
Steve's got a big lush voice, but for this record, he forgot to leave his "stage" voice at the club. The treatments are way over the top and he has trouble controlling some notes. There are a number of treasures here... but Neil Diamond's "Everybody's Talking" is the better lounge number.
Comment from the original post: I knew this guy back in the 80s. He was an excellent piano/jazz teacher and went on to get a degree in music. His voice was more rough than whats heard here but it lent him to do charecter voices on the radio with excellent humor.JC
