Visionaries in music don't come any mightier than Maurice White. As the founder of the band Earth Wind & Fire, he shrewdly assembled "the elements" that crafted a mold-shattering music machine.
Now, 37 years after Earth Wind & Fire's 1970 debut, a stellar collection of contemporary soul disciples has created a tribute to Maurice White with Interpretations: Celebrating The Music of Earth Wind & Fire - ten of "The Fire’s" most memorable pieces as rendered by ten contemporary artists who owe the group a substantial measure of debt. This auspicious project will be the inaugural release for Concord’s newly reactivated Stax label. Features Angie Stone (on "Be Ever Wonderful"), Kirk Franklin ("September"), Chaka Khan ("Shining Star"), Ledisi ("Devotion"), The Randy Watson Experience featuring Bilal ("Can't Hide Love"), Dwele ("That's The Way of The World"), Meshell Ndegeocello ("Fantasy"), Lalah Hathaway, Musiq Soulchild, and Mint Condition!
