Musician
    (March 22, 1943- )
    Started out playing straight-ahead instrumental jazz guitar, later playing more R&B and pop tinged music
    Recorded '20/20,' 'Give Me The Night,' 'Turn Your Love Around,' 'Never Give Up On A Good Thing,' 'Love X Love,' 'Nothing's Gonna Change My Love For You,' 'The Greatest Love of All,' 'Feel Like Makin' Love,' 'Breezin,' ' 'This Masquerade,' 'In Your Eyes,' 'You Are The Love Of My Life,' 'Lady Love Me (One More Time),' 'Kisses In The Moonlight,' 'Love All The Hurt Away,' 'Moody's Mood,' 'Nature Boy,' 'Love Ballad,' 'Shiver,' 'On Broadway,' 'I Just Wanna Hang Around You,' 'Inside Love (So Personal)' and 'Everything Must Change'
    He uses the word 'LOVE' in too many of his song titles.
    When he switched to more commercially oriented music, he might have gained a wider audience but alienated many jazz purists.
    His album 'Breezin' (1976) has sold more than 7 million copies to make it the largest selling 'jazz' album of all time, but the 'jazz police' insist it's not a true jazz body of work.
    He calls today's rappers the 'younger cats.'
    He started playing music at age 3.
    Before achieving Top 40 success, he played session guitar for such diverse artists as Miles Davis, Freddie Hubbard, Dexter Gordon, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett and Minnie Riperton.
    He has seven Top 40 songs to his credit.
    He has won eight Grammys.
    He was guest guitarist on Mary J. Blige's hit ballad 'Seven Days' (1997).
    He has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
