Perhaps best known for their hit “Celebrate,” Kool & The Gang found a
special sound at the unique intersection of jazz, R&B, funk and pop. Their
music has been created by the same core of players for over thirty years:
Robert “Kool” Bell, his brother Khalis Bayyan, their longtime friends Dennis
“DT” Thomas and George “Funky” Brown, and past members Robert “Spike”
Mickens, the late Charles Smith, Ricky West and Woody Sparrow.
McCain, a Greenville, S.C. native, is best known for his smash hits “I’ll
Be,” “I Could Not Ask For More” and “Solitude.” His latest release, Best
of Edwin McCain, collects all of those fan favorites plus a new song, “Walk
With You,” in one disc. After releasing eight albums and selling over 2
million copies, he continues to perform hundreds of concerts throughout the
country each year. McCain’s 1997 album, Misguided Roses, sold more than
500,000 copies and was certified a gold album.
