Back at Chess in the early 1960s, Stewart began working with A&R man Billy Davis. He cut a song called “Fat Boy”. Showing additional promise with his recordings of “Reap What You Sow” and “Strange Feeling”, major chart success was not far away. Stewart hit both the pop and R&B charts big in 1965 with the songs, “I Do Love You” and “Sitting in the Park.” His improvisational technique of doubling-up, scatting his words and trilling his lips made his style unique in the 1960s.
