Profile:
American R&B-flavored soul-jazz group founded in 1963 by leader and vibes player Joe DeAguero. The six man band featured saxophonist Jack Fulks, a veteran of Chico Hamilton's band; and pianist William Henderson who also played bass, drums, flute and vibes. Henderson had previously played with Terry Gibbs' band. The original drummer was Jim Keltner who went on to become one of the most popular session drummers in pop history. On their classic 1966 self-titled album "Introducing," the lineup was Joe DeAguero on vibes; Jack Fulks on alto sax & flute; William Henderson on piano; Michael Davis (21) on timbales & traps; Norman Johnson on bass; and Moises Obligacion on congas.
