Earth, Wind & Fire -- Fan Thread
I recently "discovered" Earth, Wind & Fire. I mean, I got my degree in trumpet performance, so I was aware of them, but never really listened to their music.
Now I'm addicted. It's incredible stuff. My favorite songs:
I'll Write a Song for You

Oh, yes, a great band with some very good trumpet players over the years, especially Johnny Graham in the 70s and early 80s. Not sure who the current trumpet lead is, but could be Bobby Burns Jr.
I like SEPTEMBER, too. The rhythm is infectious.
"September" is one of my all-time feel-good songs.
For the musical historians (harrumph) out there, the soundtrack to the Blaxploitation film "Sweet Sweetback's Badasssss Song" was E,W&F before they were E,W&F. Very raw.
If you like Earth Wind and Fire you might like C.C.S.
Led by Alexis Korner, need I say more.
And by the way I agree Earth Wind and Fire were the cats bananas
@trumpetb You can add to that Boogie Wonderland, Got to Get You into my life, In the Stone,
