WALKER, CHARLES & BETTYE LAVETTE
YOURS & MINE/ SERENDIPITY (OUTTA SIGHT)
Charles Walker & Bettye LaVette's paths have intersected continually since the early 1960s. Both went to New York to begin their professional careers as soul singers.
Both succeeded there during the golden era of soul/R&B, in its epicenter. Both recorded for a long and distinguished list of American and international soul record labels.
Both, in the 1960s, shared the front-stage spotlight fronting house bands at Small's Paradise; the legendary Harlem venue that hosted, for work and for play, all of the giants of soul, R&B, and jazz, during those genres' undisputed brightest, most fruitful period.
Both have experienced resurgences buttressed by a revitalization of true soul music, itself.
And now, both come together in this new century, for the first time on a recording, to display their incredible, ageless talents and powerful facilities as true soul music veterans in top form, delivering Outta Sight Records' new single, "Yours And Mine."
