The Biggest Disco Band: Vince Montana's Salsoul Orchestra

Salsoul_Orchestra500
The Salsoul Orchestra

vince_montana_02A


Profile:
Formed 1974 in New York, U.S.A. Disbanded in 1982. The house band of Salsoul Records.
This prime Disco big band was a big influence in inspiring club house music, they were fusing Philly Soul, Funk and Latin Music in a danceable disco sound. The Salsoul Orchestra included up to 50 members with instrumental section, arrangers and conductors.
In the same way that MFSB were the 'house orchestra' to Philadelphia International, the Salsoul Orchestra performed the same task for Salsoul Records.
In 1974, Vince Montana was introduced to local entrepreneurs Joe, Ken and Stan Cayre (who ran a local Latin music label) by Afro-Cuban pianist Joe Bataan.
Within the Salsoul Orchestra, it was predominantly Vince Montana who wrote, conducted and produced the orchestra from the mid-70's to the mid-'80's.
Some of their finer moments included 'Ooh I Love It (Love Break)' (1975), 'You're Just The Right Size' (1976), 'Salsoul 3001' (1976), 'Runaway' (1977), 'Christmas Time Medley' (1981), 'Take Some Time Out' (1982) and the Patrick Adams-produced 'Seconds' featuring Loleatta Holloway (1982).
With arrangers, conductors and whole sections of instruments (including up to 18 violinists), contributing to the sound, the Salsoul Orchestra routinely included up to 50 members.
The orchestra also played on numerous recordings for the label's other groups and artists such as Charo's 'Charo And The Salsoul Orchestra' (1977), including 'Dance A Little Bit Closer'.
Many Salsoul contributors played on some of the best disco tracks of their time, including Trammps, Grace Jones, the Whispers, Loleatta Holloway and First Choice.
After dismantling the Salsoul Orchestra in the early '80's, Vince Montana led the studio group Montana and recorded with several pop stars of the '80's as well as the '90s.
Though Salsoul records had long been out of print, several were brought back in the mid-'90's.
Many of the more recent 'house' music offerings owe more than a passing nod to the recordings of this orchestra.

Salsoul Orchestra
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Salsoul Orchestra was the backing band for acts on Salsoul Records. It was formed 1974 in New York., U.S. and disbanded in 1982. Their music featured elements of Philly Soul, Funk, Latin Music and disco. The Salsoul Orchestra included up to 50 members with instrumental section, arrangers and conductors. The Salsoul Orchestra was conducted by Vincent Montana Jr.(1975- 1978)
Production duties came,from 1978 to 1983, by Tom Moulton, Stan Lucas, Patrick Adams & Bunny Sigler.
The Salsoul Orchestra consisted of the most of the original members of MFSB, who had moved on to Salsoul as the result of a disagreement with Gamble & Huff over finances. Other members began performing as The Ritchie Family orchestra, and John Davis and the Monster Orchestra. On later MFSB recordings, Gamble & Huff uses a new rhythm section which caused them to have a slightly different sound.
Their song, "Love Break (Ooh I Love It)" has been sampled in rap songs such as 50 Cent's "Candyshop" and Eric B & Rakim's "Paid in Full", but most notably in Madonna's "Vogue".

Tracks:
* "Salsoul 3001"
* "Dance Little Bit Closer" feat Charo
* "Sun After The Rain"
* "It's Good For The Soul"
* "Salsoul Hustle"
* "Resorts International"

The Salsoul Orchestra Biography
(From http://www.artistdirect.com/)
The music world's prime disco big band during the late '70s, the Salsoul Orchestra recorded several of the tightest, chunkiest disco themes of the 1970s, both on its own productions and as the backing group for several prime vocalists. Organized by Vincent Montana, Jr. in 1974, the band was an experiment in fusing funk, Philly soul, and Latin music together in a highly danceable discofied style with plenty of room for solos by individual members. With arrangers, conductors, and whole sections of instruments (including up to 18 violinists) contributing to the sound, the Salsoul Orchestra routinely included up to 50 members. Though the Salsoul sound became passé in the wake of disco music's explosion and rapid commercialization during the late '70s, Salsoul was a heavy influence on house music in the 1980s and even the return of disco-inspired electronica during the following decade.

The beginnings of the Salsoul Orchestra (and Salsoul Records) lie with nominal head Vincent Montana, Jr. A longtime jazz vibraphonist, bandleader, and session man with Philly soul groups like Harold Melvin & the Bluenotes, the O'Jays, and the Spinners, Montana dreamed of constructing a large studio orchestra which could fuse polished soul and brassy funk with Latin percussion and live strings. In 1974, he was introduced to local entrepreneurs JoeKen, and Stan Cayre (who ran a local Latin music label) by Afro-Cuban pianist Joe Bataan. With their blessing (and financing), Montana spent months recruiting dozens of musicians from the streets and studios of New York -- including more than a half-dozen percussionists alone. The collective recorded three tracks, which impressed Bataan and the Cayres so much that they decided to form a new label -- named Salsoul for its connotations of salsa and soul -- to release a full-length LP.

One of the original Salsoul Orchestra recordings, "The Salsoul Hustle," was released in mid-1975 and it placed well on the charts. Salsoul's second single, "Tangerine" (an unlikely cover of a Jimmy Dorsey tune), hit the Top 20 in early 1976 and pushed the eponymous Salsoul Orchestra LP to number 14 on the album charts. Follow-up singles like "You're Just the Right Size" and "Nice and Nasty" did moderately well on the charts but soon a glut of similar-sounding material began to flood the market, cheap imitations of the amazing instrumentation of Salsoul Orchestra members -- guitarist and producer Norman Harris, bassist Ronald Baker, drummer Earl Young, arranger Don Renaldo, percussionist Larry Washington, and vocalists Jocelyn BrownPhyllis RhodesRonni TysonPhilip Hurt, and Carl Helm. Many Salsoul contributors played on the biggest and best disco tracks of the era, including TrammpsGrace Jones, the Whispers, Loleatta Holloway, and First Choice.

Salsoul's third LP, the slightly amusing Christmas Jollies, displayed a predilection towards the growing disco novelty trend. The slip was hardly improved upon with 1977's Cuchi-Cuchi (which teamed the Orchestra with Charo) or 1978's Up the Yellow Brick Road (a takeoff on +The Wiz). After disintegrating the Salsoul Orchestra in the early '80s, Vince Montana led the studio group Montana and recorded with several pop stars of the '80s as well as dance inheritors of the '90s like Mondo Grosso and Nuyorican Soul. Though Salsoul records had long been out of print, several were brought back in the mid-'90s, as well as a prescient two-disc retrospective titled Anthology. ~ John Bush, All Music Guide

Info: Overdose Of The Holy Ghost Compiled by David Hill (Promo Mix by Joey Negro)

holyghost promo sleeve
Overdose Of The Holy Ghost compiled by David Hill - Promo Mix

Double CD available now from: http://www.zrecords.ltd.uk/new-releases
Gatefold Double LP to follow in early May...
Following on from the likes of “Backstreet Brit Funk”, “Destination Boogie” “GoGo Get Down”, the well-received and growing Under The Influence series and the ever-popular Soul of Disco albums, Z Records continue to release high quality compilations filled with lesser known disco, soul, funk and boogie. Now ZR returns with a long overdue Gospel album compiled by David Hill.
(Joey Negro)

A word from David Hill...
“Gospel music has often followed the prominent trends in secular music, probably in the hope of widening its audience by giving the subject matter a sprinkling of cool. In the 60s it happened with R&B and then funk-flavoured gospel, the 70s brought sweet-soul crossovers, and by 1975 the sounds of early disco had started to permeate the genre. This compilation brings together overlooked gospel gems that have their production rooted in disco and boogie, the sound of the early 80s that followed in disco’s wake. It’s only recently that this music has begun to be appreciated by fans outside of its original target market, and I’m glad to help it finally reach a wider audience.”
David began his music career in 1994 as a member of the Ballistic Brothers, together with Ashley Beedle and Rocky & Diesel of X-Press 2. In 1994 he co-founded the Nuphonic record label, where he managed the creative aspects on almost a hundred releases, with artists including Faze Action, Norman Jay, Andrew Weatherall, Maurice Fulton and David Mancuso. In addition to the record label, Nuphonic also produced the Sony award winning London Xpress radio show for Xfm, which led to various club nights.
David has also acted as a music consultant to several record companies, one of these being Soul Jazz records, who he produced a series of successful albums for - in 2004 the ‘World of Arthur Russell’ and more then the acclaimed ‘Soul Gospel’ series. He was also production consultant for Auralux, the London based reggae reissue record label, where he worked with Lee Perry, King Jammys, Sly & Robbie and Linval Thompson.
He continues to work on personal projects such as Rootikal, the monthly roots reggae Night, and has a number of reissue and compilation projects currently in production. He is also currently overseeing the production of a book and an accompanying touring exhibition that will showcase Bill Bernstein's photographs of New York nightlife in the late ’70s.
As always with Z Records, we've spent time and money to make the masters sound as good as possible so if you're a fan of compilations from BBE or Dimitri From Paris and our own Soul of Disco & Under The Influence CD’s then this new Gospel album will not disappoint.

We've seen this story in music time and time again; Al Kent - the ambitious producer who spent his life's earnings making his dream project. The project was the Million Dollar Orchestra, an army of musicians whose sole mission was to complete a fully orchestrated Disco LP born in Al's mind and inspired by the lost sounds of classic '70s material much in the vein of the Salsoul Orchestra or MFSB. The MDO LP achieved just that. The music was rich with lush strings, thick brass sections and filled out with arrangements of epic Disco proportions. The LP was magnificent, however much like history has also shown us time and time again; this ambitious project left the producer completely spent, both emotionally and financially.
As we all know any producer worth his salt rises from the ashes and always comes back, usually with a newer stripped down sound and condensed studio budget. This is Al Kent's rise from the ashes that sees him coming at us full throttle even with his bruises and broken bones. This is part of the natural cycle we've seen before in Disco history. Private press Disco records sell for hundreds of dollars on ebay because of the mixture of raw energy that is harnessed in one studio take and the underfunding involved creates a distinct sound on those vinyl platters that can't be replicated. That is unless of course like Al Kent, you record much of your new secretive LP in your bedroom hence using a lot less musicians than you did last time around and then complete the rest of the project in a fully analog studio called The Barn.
Al dug out some old tracks he'd been working on previously. Some were half finished, others were little more than ideas, and a few were demos he'd put together for the Million Dollar Orchestra. He got some musicians back together to record a few bits and put these nine new tracks together. It didn't take as long as MDO, but then he didn't record a brass or string section this time. However the tunes do focus on neck snapping drum breaks, heavy boogie bass lines, the bottom heavy aspects of Disco, or as I like to think of it - the underbelly of real independent Disco. It was all mixed at The Barn again, "because that desk and reel to reel tape is just too nice." On the technical side, the difference between digital and analog especially in the right hands is night and day. When it goes through a proper desk where all the effects and all the reverbs etc, are real, it makes a massive difference. It throws up all sorts of challenges which on a computer would be fixed in seconds with some preset. It takes a lot of time and thought to do this using more traditional methods but it's worth it when it works out.
The finished mixes were bounced to tape - i.e. played back through the mixing desk to a reel to reel machine then recorded back to the computer via valve compressors and other gizmos. That process just pulls everything together and the tape adds a certain something - a warmth that's totally missing in digital recording.
On the creative side Al thought that an album of all up tempo tracks that were primarily DJ friendly didn't make for a particularly interesting album, except to DJs. He wanted to find a way to make it more interesting for the general public to listen to as well. The LP starts off with a banger and track tempos vary from fired up dancers to mid tempo hustles and down tempo steppers, all the while woven through recordings of lost DJ interviews, commercial advertisements for old Discos, and even revisits the Disco Sucks riot in Chicago's Comiskey ball park over the course of the LP. Al expropriates the Disco Sucks chants and even including it in one of the tunes. The phrase "Disco's Revenge" immediately comes to mind. Don't forget Al got his start as a soul boy and the star tune of this LP may even just be the vocal anthem "Come Back Home" featuring Tyrone Taylor on vocals. This is a welcome addition to Al's discography and brings his sounds full circle.
This independent Disco LP is woven from the mind of a true Disco aficionado (some may even say Disco obsessive) using both real history and new sounds to create a modern disco fantasy for all to enjoy on their headphones or on the dance floors. It is with great honor that I introduce Al Kent's latest burner of a Disco LP: SECRET SOUNDS - So turn up that stereo or put on your best outfit for the discothèque, and get down-get down...
