That can only be JERRY BUTLER. After 50 years, still a beautiful voice, a wonderful stylist, and a genuine class act.

Al Jarreau is probably more "consistent." However, my one favorite song by an AA male musical performer is this one by Louis Armstrong. I believe it was his last song, and he died shortly afterward.
