Home / Biography / Latimore



Deep-voiced Latimore’s sultry middle-’70s output for Miami’s Glades label was a steamy marriage of soul and blues. Originally billed as Benny Latimore, the Tennessean started documenting for Miami mogul Henry Rock in 1965, and his past due-’60s Dade singles are solid deep spirit. Falling his first name on Glades, Latimore finally discovered stardom in 1973 using a jazzy reading of T-Bone Walker’s “Stormy Mon.” He topped the spirit lists in 1974 using the anguished “Let’s Straighten It Out,” a simmering spirit/blues cross types, and encored using the incendiary “Keep carefully the House Fires Burnin'” another year. The majority of Latimore’s Glades edges were stated in Miami by Steve “EACH DAY I must Cry” Alaimo, so when he wasn’t reducing his own strikes, Latimore acted as a residence pianist for mother or father TK Information. Latimore transferred to Malaco through the ’80s, his charm undiminished.
