Joe Cocker - One Night of Sin

Joe Cocker - One Night of Sin.  One Night of Sin is the twelfth studio album by Joe Cocker, released in 1989.  He did a great song off this record - "When the Night Comes" - 5:20 (written Bryan AdamsJim VallanceDiane Warren).  Wow, tons of great artists play on this record.  I guess when Joe calls, you answer - and show up and play.  How about Aldo Nova?!.  Plus Bryan Adams, his old pal Chris Stainton, and Jeff Levine, and bass player T.M. Stevens.  Here is more on him:  "Stevens records with his band Shocka Zooloo, a power trio that features Michael Barnes "Master Blaster" on guitar and Garry "G-Man" Sullivan on drums. To date the band has released seven albums, the most recent being Africans in the Snow for the SPV Steamhammer label.  Along with his work as both songwriter and producer, Stevens works with other artists. Scheduling at least two European Shocka Zooloo tours each year, he also toured in 2004 with Jean Paul Bourelly and drummer John Blackwell (Prince). In Autumn 2005 he completed an Asian tour with Neil Zaza going directly into a lengthy European tour with Shocka Zooloo. Stevens finished 2005 with a collaboration with Carl Palmer and Andrea Braido in Italy and Russia which was followed by a European ELP tour in February 2006. As of 2007, he is also the current touring bassist for The Headhunters.  In summer 2011 he joined the Bootsy Collins Funk Unity Tour.  Steven's vocals came about through James Brown's insistence that he not only play bass but sing on "Living in America" and on Brown's album, Gravity.  Stevens has recorded with many artists including: , Steve Vai, Neil Zaza, Cyndi Lauper, Little Steven, Tina Turner, Dan Hartman and Billy Joel.  A former member of The Pretenders, Stevens recorded on the platinum album Get Close.  He produced and arranged the album Tribute to Deep Purple According to New York on which included: Vinnie Moore, members of Living Colour and Bernie Worrell of Parliament-Funkadelic. Stevens performed on Joe Cocker's album, Unchain My Heart.  Together with Narada Michael Walden he penned the Billboard hit "I Should Have Loved Ya".  His early jazz years brought him to play with Miles Davis."
