Welcome to a very special kind of music - one that is at once sweet and sophisticated yet passionate and soulful. It’s lush with buoyant strings and horns, smooth harmonies, insistent dance rhythms and searing ballads. It’s the unique sound of composers and producers Kenny Gamble, Leon Huff and Thom Bell. To the casual listener it means legendary soul artists The O’Jays, Teddy Pendergrass and Billy Paul and disco hits by Frantique and McFadden & Whitehead. Welcome to the original sound of Philadelphia.
