The Three Pieces


The Three Pieces was an iconic American funk band that left an indelible mark on the music scene of the 1970s. Founded in Washington, D.C., the band consisted of three extraordinary musicians: Lincoln Ross, Andre Richardson (2), and Jerry Wilder, three Howard University students discovered by legendary musician Donald Byrd while they attended one of Byrd’s classes.

Their unique sound, blending elements of funk, soul, and jazz, quickly earned them respect in the local music scene. However, it was their debut LP "Vibes Of Truth", released in 1975, that catapulted them to national and international prominence. This groundbreaking album was produced under the wing of Donald Byrd and captured audiences with its infectious groove and sophisticated melodies.

Among the album's standout tracks were hits like "Backed Up Against the Wall" and "Self Dealin'", which solidified the band's reputation as funk pioneers. Their ability to blend sharp rhythms with sophisticated instrumental arrangements made them a driving force in the 1970s music scene.

Despite the success of their debut album, the band never released any further studio recordings and disbanded in the following years.
