Clive Davis Keeps His Groove

According to The Hollywood Reporter’s Roger Friedman, Clive Davis, older statesman of the music world, hasn’t lost his touch. Sony’s chief creative officer has a fall line-up including Alicia Keys, Leona Lewis, and Carlos Santana in addition to the recently announced release of Whitney Houston’s first album in six years, slated for Sept. 1. For easy-listening fans, Davis will also put out albums from Barry Manilow and Harry Connick Jr. by the end of the year.
