Spending Sunday Morning With EWF (Sunday Song Series)

Throughout Earth, Wind & Fire’s legendary recording / performing history, this band with Chicago roots, founded by Maurice White back in 1969, has managed to consistently keep their sound innovative via the unflinching exploration of a vast array of musical genres… R&B, soul, funk, jazz, disco, pop, rock, dance, Latin, and Afro pop.

Even were a DJ to cut off her/his talkover microphone to spin their songs, unannounced, it’d be this ensemble’s melodious, layered vocal arrangements and horn section’s charismatic, captivating, driving force that’d readily identify them as EWF.

The following links tell the backstory to our above clip’s selection, Sunday Morning, and the Millennium album on which it originally appeared… the Wikipedia excerpt, below affords us a small glimpse into EWF’s accomplishments…

“The band has won six Grammys from their 17 nominations and four American Music Awards out of 12 nominations. They have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Vocal Group Hall of Fame, the NAACP Image Award Hall of Fame, and Hollywood’s Rockwalk, in addition to receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. With sales of over 90 million records, they are one of the world’s best-selling bands of all time. The band has also received an ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Heritage Award, BET Lifetime Achievement Award, and the Soul Train Legend Award, as well as a NARAS Signature Governor’s Award, a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, the 2012 Congressional Horizon Award, and the Kennedy Center Honors in 2019.” read more here
