    For those of you who love horn bands, if you don't know the late 70s, Honolulu based "Seawind" then let me introduce you to them.

    Most horn players know of Jerry Hey and his work with Earth, Wind and Fire, Michael Jackson, Quincy Jones and a host of horn-line writing on the LA scene from the 1970s on. The horn line of "Seawind" was Jerry Hey (trpt), Kim Hutchcroft (sas, flt), and Larry Williams (woodwinds, kbd). Singer was Pauline Wilson.

    Here's the only video I could find, "Light the Light", Pauline Wilson and Seawind: Seawind Light the light - YouTube

    Kahaulani... Thanks for turning me on to Seawind.... Very nice.... Just what I need to come down from a 12 hour day admitting patients to a pediatric ward.

    Tower of Power's East Bay Funk had some pretty amazing grooves as did another Bay Area Band, the Grateful Dead. In my opinion, Seawind, Gino Vanelli, Bob James and later Pat Methany and others moved in a way to fuse funk and jazz together. My opinion anyway--I'm not a musicologist, so am open to other opinions....

    My pleasure. If you want more, they are available on YouTube. My personal favourites are from the first two albums, "Seawind" and "Window of a Child". Caveat - the band is a little eclectic, so if you don't like one tune don't get turned off. Just check out another one.

    Side comment - I used the music from Seawind as the "processional" and "recessional" when I got married. Hey! It was the 70s. :D

    Aloha.
