BRASS CONSTRUCTION Formed in Brooklyn, New York in 1968. Brass Construction were the brainchild of keyboards player and singer Randy Muller (b. Guyana). In 1975, their debut album changed the face of dance music and is still a huge influence some 30 years on.
Randy originally formed the band in Brooklyn, New York, under the name of Dynamic Soul. Renamed Brass Construction, the nine-piece group were signed by United Artists in 1975. The members included: Michael Grudge (b. Jamaica) and Jesse Ward Jnr.
(saxophones) Wayne Parris (b. Jamaica) and Morris Price (trumpets) Joseph Arthur Wong (b. Trinidad; guitar) Wade Williamson (bass) Larry Payton (drums) and percussionist Sandy Billups With their tight horn section and brief, chanted vocals, the group's first release, 'Movin', topped the R & B charts and was a pop Top 20 hit. It was followed by 'Changin', 'Ha Cha Cha' (From Brass Construction II) and 'L-O-V-E U', which were all best-sellers. ...show less
