Lookout Wynwood! Mysterious Henry Stone street art posters have been taking over the neighborhood as Art Basel Miami 2013 descends on the city.

We don’t know who the crusaders putting these up are, but it’s good to know that as the eyes of the world are upon Miami this week, that the creator of the Miami Sound of music will be recognized too.

If you don’t know, Henry Stone is a pioneer in R&B, soul, funk, disco, dance, and hip hop music. He produced the first version of The Twist, and wrote a song covered by Frank Sinatra. He was friends with Leonard Chess, and the first distributor for Atlantic Records.

From recording Ray Charles in a warehouse on Flagler street in 1951, to discovering Sam&Dave, Betty Wright, Little Beaver, Latimore, George McCrae, KC & The Sunshine Band, Timmy Thomas, Blowlfy, Willie Clarke, and many more, Henry Stone is a giant in the world of modern music history.

From being James Brown’s Godfather, to selling hundreds of millions of records around the globe, Henry Stone has never lost the flavor of the streets of the City of Miami, and now they bear his face in tribute to that legacy.

The critically-acclaimed new Netflix show “Orange is the New Black” features a classic track by the multi-million selling gold-record artist Latimore. “Move and Groove Together”, from the world-renowned Southern Soul crooner, is used as part of the premiere episode.

The track comes in at 14:30 in the first episode, titled “I Wasn’t Ready”, in a very sultry scene with the main character, Piper Chapman, played by Taylor Schilling, dancing for her lesbian lover, Alex Vause, played by Laura Prepon. Netflix has recently received fourteen Emmy nominations for their original programming.

The track “Move and Groove Together”, available on the Benny Latimore The Early Years CD, has quickly jumped up the sales charts. It was originally recorded in 1968 at Bobby Dukoff’s studio and was written and sung by Latimore. It came out on Dade Records as a 45. This is a representation of the true Miami Sound, long before any of those other came out in the 80s.

Born in Charleston, TN in 1939, Benny Latimore was influenced by country music, his Baptist church choir, and the Blues. WLAC, via the strong evening signal from Nashville, was a favorite in Latimore’s youth.

Benny Latimore, who was produced by Steve Alaimo, describes “The Miami Sound” as a kind of combination of R&B and Jazz.

In a career spanning over 35 years and beginning with recordings in the 1960s for Miami music legend Henry Stone, the gems on this CD were cut on the Dade label long before Benny’s success on the Glades/T.K. label. These early recordings for Dade are solid deep soul, graced by Latimore’s deep, sultry voice.

Included on this disc are the much sought after 1965 hits, “I Can’t Go On Anymore” and “Rain From the Sky”, originally recorded on Stone’s Blade label. These are treasures that until now only a few collectors were lucky enough to have. Today we bring them to you for the world to hear.

“Sensational” really is the best word to describe Latimore. He proved to be extremely adept as both a superlative vocalist and keyboard player par excellence. Benny Latimore is Florida’s master soul stylist.
