Latimore, is an American R&B singer, songwriter and pianist. In the early 1970s he moved to the Glades label, and had his first major hit in 1973 with a jazzy reworking of T-Bone Walker's "Stormy Monday". His first national hit was "If You Were My Woman," a gender-modified cover of "If I Were Your Woman" (written by Pam Sawyer and Gloria Jones and first popularized by Gladys Knight & the Pips).His biggest success came in 1974, with "Let's Straighten It Out", a #1 R&B hit which also reached #31 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart. He followed it up with more hits including "Keep The Home Fire Burnin'" and "Somethin' 'Bout 'Cha". Latimore moved to Malaco Records in 1982, releasing seven albums of modern soul music with that label. He briefly left the label in 1994 and released a song for the J-Town label, "Turning Up The Mood", before returning to Malaco in 2000 with: "You're Welcome To Ride". Next Latimore recorded an album with Mel Waiters' label, Brittney Records, called Latt Is Back. Later, Latimore collaborated with Henry Stone on a new record label called LatStone; which released his first new album in six years called: Back 'Atcha. He has continued to work as a session pianist. He appeared most recently on Joss Stone's albums, The Soul Sessions (2003) and Mind, Body & Soul (2004), along with fellow Miami music veterans Betty Wright, Timmy Thomas and Willie Halealong with a May 5, 2014 appearance on Jimmy Fallon, The Tonight show.
