O.k. guys. I haven’t been a huge Willie Hutch fan. However, I did like some of works he produced during the Blaxploitation era; most famously the work he did on the “Foxy Brown” soundtrack released in 1974, under Motown Records. I was listening to an internet oldies radio show not too long ago (I don’t remember the name of the station), but they shocked me by playing a song I haven’t heard in ages!! It was Willie Hutch’s reinterpretation of “Stormy Weather.” Now, I don’t know if I mentioned this before, but, I usually don’t listen to certain male love songs, that were originally/traditionally sung by women. I know that may sound stupid. But, as a music lover, I don’t think they always translate the same. It’s like when you’re translating a song from one language to another, it just doesn’t always sound the same, or make sense. However, I feel Willie done an outstanding job on this song, and I really recommend that you take a listen. Singer and actor Ethel Waters first sang the song in 1933. In fact many, many people have reinterpreted this song. But the artist that became most famous for her rendition of “Stormy Weather” was the legendary Lena Horne in 1943. Lena also appeared and sung in the movie called “Stormy Weather” in 1943.
