R.I.P. Harold Battiste Jr

 

Sonny & Cher's longtime arranger and orchestrator Harold Battiste Jr passed away on June 19th 2015. His contributions to the making of Sonny & Cher are innumerable. Beginning with Sonny at Specialty records in the early '60s, his inspired musicality helped transform Caesar & Cleo into the hit-making team of Sonny & Cher as well as Cher the solo star.

A delightful gentleman, Harold made many contributions to this site despite failing health.
