Brothers Johnson

Profile:
American soul/funk/jazz/disco band.

Formed in 1975 in Los Angeles, California, USA, led by brothers George Johnson and Louis Johnson. Initially their line-up also included their cousin Alex Weir.

They both started their careers as backing musicians of Bobby Womack, Billy Preston, et al., before later going it alone under the guidance of producer Quincy Jones, who brought them to prominence using them on his own album "Mellow Madness" (1975).

They recorded eight albums between 1976 and 1988, and are most famous for their disco smash "Stomp!" (1980), and their cover of the Shuggie Otis classic "Strawberry Letter #23" (1977).
