Let’s start with some legendary Rock, R&B and Jazz musicians.
Bruce Springsteen – The River
Did you know? Bruce Springsteen earned 20 Grammy Awards. His first Grammy Award was for Best Rock Vocal Performance on “Dancing in the Dark” in 1985*.
Ray Charles – Hit The Road Jack
Did you know? Ray Charles recorded with ABC since 1959, becoming the first African-American musician to be given artistic control by a mainstream record company*.
John Coltrane – The World According to John Coltrane
