Jerry Lawson
Jerry Lawson
The Persuasions lead singer Jerry Lawson is my favorite vocalist of all time and an ongoing inspiration to me. Trading lead vocals with him on the Carmen Sandiego album version of My Home is one of my proudest professional accomplishments. I consider Jerry one of my musical mentors, and I've heard him refer to me as like a son, which makes be blush with pride. I first saw the Persuasions perform in 1981 while I was in the High Jinks. Early Rockapella pilfered many Persuasions arrangements including, Man Oh Man, Chain Gang, Return To Sender, Mint Julep, Moonlight & Music and Sixty-Minute Man. We've since shared many bills with the Persuasions, the first being the PBS special, Spike & Co: Do it A Cappella. I fondly recall an impromptu 7 a.m. coffee-cart jam -- just Rockapella and Lawson, after which he ribbed his bandmates, Hell, I don't need you guys -- I've got Rockapella! We also collaborated with the Persuasions on the concert, film and live album of Zappa's Universe. This picture was taken at Tramps, NYC, in 1997.
