I came late to the game for "In The Stone" by EWF ....

Now, it's one of my favorites, but it was never even on my radar "in the day".

This tune is a staple of many high school and college marching bands, so it brings a good feel and great memories to lots of folks! I love it for cocktails, transition, or parent intros.....

P.S. I LOVE the following live performance on so many levels

Great call!

Don't get me wrong, I love the EDM of today, but think for a second what it took for bands like EW&F to pull of what they did/have with so many great musicians all doing their thing at the same time. Not a who's or what's batter question, rather just an opportunity to appreciate. -Z- :cool:

EWF, probably the best all around Band in their time. I listem to some EDM, but can't say I like a lot of the new (non musical) music. I miss the days of 3 or more guitar player, big drums, bongos, keyboards and HORNS.

I'm a HUGE fan of the whole "Philly Sound" era. The lush strings, the awesome brass sections. The O'Jays, Tavares, The Spinners (and of course EW&F). Their music was amazing. Gamble & Huff were certainly one of the most prolific production teams in all of modern music history (IMHO).

I've always loved EWF.
I got to see them touring with Chicago a few years back!
If you like bands with horn sections,
you would have LOVED the encore, with BOTH bands on stage together!

Did somebody say encore? :) Don't mind if I do!

I was just checking the web, and evidently the White brothers (who founded EWF) aren't even in the band anymore!

Wow, I thought I knew all the major EWF songs (I probably have about 30 of them) but have honestly never heard this. Another great jam by them. Thanks for sharing!

Yes, there's nothing like seeing a great horn section live. I've seen EWF once and it was incredible. I also saw Bruce Springsteen a few years ago and he had a horn section with him as well and it added such a cool element to the songs (this was shortly after Clarence Clemons passed away; in fact, Clemons' nephew was in the horn section and played all the major sax parts).

KC and the Sunshine Band was another group that showcased the horn section more than most. KC had some great music when he hit the airways. I was listening to I'm your Boogie Man on my studio system (listed below) at a pretty loud level yesteday and loved all the different instruments that it took to make that song.

Pair of EX-ZX1s (crossed at 100 hz)
Single EX-TX1181 18" sub (set at 40-100hz)
EV-DCONE Processor
EV-CP4000 amp
Numark Mix Deck Express
Toshiba Laptop running VDJ8

Yes - the horn section elevates the E Street Band - for sure!

If you have 4 minutes, also watch the second post of EWF & Chicago in concert. In the Stone has turned into one of their go-to songs.
