ALEX

Brick is a former American band that created a successful merger of funk and jazz in the 1970s. Their most popular single was "Dazz" (#3 Pop, #1 R&B), released in 1976.
Brick was formed in Atlanta, Georgia in 1972 from members of two bands - one disco and the other jazz. They coined their own term for disco-jazz, "dazz". They released their first single "Music Matic" on Main Street Records in 1976, before singing to Bang Records, distributed by CBS Records.

 

Their next single, "Dazz", (#3 Pop, #1 R&B) was released in 1976. The band continued to record for Bang records until 1982. Other hits followed: "That's What It's All About" (R&B #48) and "Dusic" (#18 Pop) in 1977, and "Ain't Gonna' Hurt Nobody" (#92 Pop, #7 R&B) in 1978. Their last Top Ten R&B hit was "Sweat (Til You Get Wet)" in 1981.

 

The band comprised:
Jimmy Brown (lead vocals / flute / sax / horns)
Regi Hargis Hickman (vocals / guitar / bass)
Ray Ransom (lead vocals / bass / keyboards / percussion)
Donald Nevins (vocals / Acoustic Piano / Clavinet / Moog)
and Eddie Irons (lead vocals / drums / keyboards).
In the mid-70's Brick signed to the Bang label (via CBS) and established themselves on the UK funk / soul scene with 'Dazz' (disco jazz) which reached the UK Top 40 in 1976.
Their albums included 'Good High' (1976), 'Brick' (1977), 'Stoneheart' (1978), 'Waiting On You' (1980) 'Summer Heat' (1981) and 'After 5' (1982), including 'Free Dancer'.
The album 'Summer Heat' was a collaboration with Ray Parker Jnr, who co-produced and co-wrote several of the album tracks.
In 1988 they worked with producer Michael J. Powell on 'Too Tuff' for the Magic City label.
