Sonny Craver

Profile:
Also thought to have recorded as The Phantom (14) (but that is now under doubt), Sonny Craver is a vocalist, piano player and actor from Columbus, Ohio who later moved to California.
He began his career with the Stomp Gordon Band and also played with the Earl Hood Orchestra, the Raleigh Randolph Band and with "Rahsaan" Roland Kirk in the Sonny Craver Five. Craver left Columbus in 1954 and joined the King Kolax Band in Chicago. Sonny later became one of the voices of the popular Mills Brothers style group called the Harmonaires. Sonny owned the club Regal and managed the Carolyn Club in Columbus in Bronzeville. He also founded the Stanson Recording Company at 517 East Long Street with Eddie Colston and Stan Freidberg.
