Reggie,

Congratulations! This is a long overdue recognition for a genius in this business. To have CA's portrayal in Searching for Sugarman be the only thing out there was unfortunate. Because he was truly the Godfather, he was stealth. Black talent didn't have a powerful advocate in the upper rooms until CA emerged.

I met him when I worked with SOS band on thier second album and later when I was working with Leon Sylvers.  He had an unassuming office in on Bev Hills side of Sunset Blvd. He was friendly and always open & accesible. Also, the most amazing collection of African American Art. He told me an amazing story of how he got his first house in Bev Hills. I'll share it with you the next time we connect.

This documentary comes out at an opportune time. We need to lift up & acknowledge those who made a difference while they are still here.

best
steve
