Change

Profile:
Italian Disco-Soul group, based in Bologna, founded by songwriters-producers Jacques Fred Petrus, Mauro Malavasi and Davide Romani.
Initially they started with guest vocalist Luther Vandross, but soon after James Robinson replaced him regularly.
In the same mode, Jocelyn Brown was replaced by Deborah Cooper as a main lead vocalist.
Between 1980 - 1985 they released six albums, inspired by the glamour and hi-class image of Chic.
They spawned hits like "A Lover's Holiday," "Change Of Heart," "Mutual Attraction," "Paradise," "Searching," "The Glow Of Love" & "The Very Best In You."
In 1984, they collaborated with the gold duo, producer- songwriter's Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis.
In 2009, they made a comeback with their long lost, since 1990, album "Change Your Mind," with guest vocalists Lisa Fischer and Patrick Boothe.

Change created some of the most electric sounding soul in the galaxy and are certainly one of the most influential bands to my ears.
When you listen to "Warm", "Lets go together" or "You are my melody" to name a few you are listening to everyday life and love!
Melody, bass and vocals to revive any mood!
Oh....Great artwork too... very 80s!

Change is one of the most over looked groups in the early 80's that should earn much more credit for their fantastic achievements even though it's 18 years ago they released their latest album. It all started in Italy in 1979 where the Guadeloupe born (executive) producer Jacques Fred Petrus and his closest companion, the Italian mastermind musician Mauro Malavasi decided to launch a new group after working together a couple of years (formed Goody music records around 75). The groups name became Change and the men behind it were originally based in Bologna and Milan in Italy but later also in New York. Right from the start Petrus and Malavasi used Italian musicians (Mauro Malavasi, Davide Romani and Paulo Gianolio among others) and American vocalists (LutherVandross, Diva Gray and later James "Crabs" Robinson and Timmy Allen) of whom the lead vocalist from Change's debut, Luther Vandross later became the most well known character from the time (he later became a big name on his own with several albums). From the beginning Change was just a studio concept though, with several "Change" touring around America, but in 82 they became a group in the right meaning of the word. After a poor release in 85 they split up and Jacques Fred Petrus was murdered two years after, most likely in his native country of Guadeloupe due to illegal affairs with the Mob. Mauro Malavasi however, is today a successful songwriter and producer in Italy that been producing Andrea Bocceli and other great singers.
