He has recorded with other artists including Rockie Robbins, Atlantic Starr, Fire Fox, The Four Tops, Bert Robinson, Bobby Womack, Barbara Weathers, Gangsback, Leon Ware along with many others.

At Atlantic Records, as an artist, his albums include 'Just Between Us' (1987), 'Bermuda Nights' (1988), 'Dream Come True' (1990), featuring vocals by Be Be Winans on 'Growing With Each Other', 'Live At Birdland West (1991), 'Smooth' (1994), 'Giving Myself To You' (1995) and 'Live To Love' (1997).
