     Mastermind

    This 10-piece band was active in the New York in the 1970s and like others of this genre used a horn section in much of their music. Although they did use vocals in some of their songs it was basically a band of musicians who played a jazz-funk style of music with the music being seen as more important than singing. Having several jazz performers appear as guest artists, the band saw the accompaniment of the saxophone player, David Sanborn, the guitarist Steve Khan, and trumpeter Jon Faddis on several occasions.  They released a self-titled album that did not see success and the band broke up before recording another.
