Earth, Wind & Fire

Nashville Scene Critic's Pick …

Do we really need to explain ourselves here? Surely you already know how awesome Earth, Wind & Fire are — you can’t slip under anybody’s radar once you’ve sold 90 million records. In the four decades since Maurice White and crew burst out of the Chicago scene, EW&F have produced some of the most essential pop music the world has ever known. And even though they touch on everything from free jazz to rock to disco and funk, EW&F makes pop music, plain and simple: The forms and functions may be far-flung, but the end result is pure ear candy. They managed to make music that was hugely popular and yet highly progressive, a feat that we’re pretty sure was made a federal crime by the Telecommunications Act of 1997. And they wrote “September,” which is the jam to end all jams, in case you still need some explanation.
