Earth, Wind, and Fire: Best R&B Band Ever

R&B,funk,jazz,blues,hip-hop

EW&F is the epitome of popular music.

Immensely underrated during their apex arguably the Best popular band EVER! EW&F plays it all R&B, Funk, Pop, Jazz, and Blues. EW&F stage shows were magical literally with pyrotechnics, levitation, and stage lighting unparalleled.

Originally, EW&F was a jazz band searching for more notoriety. frontman, visionary, and leader Maurice White made the transition from Jazz band to Pop R&B powerhouse.

Make no mistake about it, EW&F was built around excellent musicianship members able to play all genres of music sometimes switching in the same song.

I remember going to EW&F shows many times throughout the 80’s extraordinary showmanship with uncanny consistency in excellence was the experience.

When Maurice White started showing symptoms of Parkinson in the middle to the late eighties the stage show changed to a more subdued performance and light show with excellent musicianship.

EW&F had one of the most expensive stage shows of its time. If you’re wondering how an EW&F stage show appeared in the 1980’s go to You-Tube and check out this link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VCZmbqJiryI

After all of the musicianship and showmanship, then, came the extraordinary vocal abilities of Philip Bailey singing at least 5 octaves throughout EW&F songs.

Maurice White had the uncanny ability to write songs and melodies so much so, he was nicknamed ‘Tunes’.

Maurice’s brother Verdine White showcased a unique bass playing style that became signature EW&F sound used by the Emotions and Denice Williams.

EW&F songs are timeless and too many to name here. We proudly play the best band in the Universe on MAJIC108FM.COM.

Shout out to Sha-Bazz and Stan ‘The Man’

“Jupiter”

Searching in the sky one night, while looking for the moon
I viewed a mighty light approaching in a zoom
Need was there to tell someone of my discovery
Fifteen seconds later, a light appeared in front of me
To my surprise, there stood a man with age and mystery
His name was Jupiter and came to visit me

The name is Jupiter, from the galaxy
I came to meet you, to make you free
Deliver to you a flower from
A distant planet, from where I come

Keep your eye on Jupiter, such beauty in the sky
We will wait for your return in the by & by
Keep your eye on Jupiter, memories we shall fulfill
Just to view a brighter day, and do a righteous will

Watching and considering my visual state of mind
The flower fragrance help reveal to me the sign
The sigh of love, I had confessed to live and really know
The sign of love which I had failed my fellowman to show

The name is Jupiter, from the galaxy
I came to meet you, to make you free
Deliver to you a flower from
A distant planet, from where I come

The name is Jupiter, from the galaxy
I came to meet you, to make you free
Deliver to you a flower from
A distant planet, from where I come

By Earth, Wind & Fire.

REAL R&B
