Tommy Stewart - I could never say goodbye (previously unreleased)

Tommy Stewart is an american trumpet player, arranger, producer, composer and pianist residing in Birmingham, Alabama. He is a member of several active performing groups, including the Magic City Jazz Orchestra, Cleveland Eaton and the Alabama All-Stars, the Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame Jazz All-Stars, and Ray Reach and Friends. He was a 1988 inductee into the Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame. Tommy is also a member of Omega Psi Phi fraternity incorporated.

During the '70s, he worked and collaborated with great artists such as John Edwards, Loletta Holloway, Johnnie Taylor, Final Approach, Creme D'CoCoa, Tamiko Jones, Moses Davis, Luther Ingram, Martha High, Harold Daniels, Julian Chatman, James Brown and Major Lance.
In 2009 Jazzman Records released EP with 6 previously unreleased boogie, disco and modern soul songs. They were recorded in the late 70s. I chose track entitled "I could never say goodbye".

This song was originally written by Tommy Stewart and Julian Chatman for Luther Ingram in 1978; however; Luther got sick and they had to use Julian on vocals. Julian did a very good job on these vocals and he made the song his!
