Dazz Band is a Grammy Award winning American funk and jazz fusion band, founded by Bobby Harris in 1977.
Originally known by the name Kinsman Dazz when the band had residency at the Kinsman Grill in Cleveland, the group signed with 20th Century Records soon after forming and headed to the studio with Marvin Gaye.
Producer Gaye was unable to complete the project and at the request of band leader Harris, Earth, Wind & Fire vocalist Philip Bailey was enlisted as producer.
Their first release was “I Might As Well Forget About Loving You” in 1978 ahead of the album “Kinsman Dazz” the same year. Producer Bailey significantly contributed to the album’s success and subsequently co-produced the band’s sophomore full-length “Dazz” in 1979.
