Here is a pic during the CBS convention circa 1974 in Sanfrancisco at the Fairmont Hotel where we MFSB entertained the top executives.
Clockwise; Drummer Earl Young with bottle in hand, saxophonist and arranger Jack Faith, Sigma engineer Dirk Devlin (before haircut) and me with huge curly Afro!!!
Needless to say we were having quite a blast celebrating the success of TSOP.

In my unbiased opinion,mfsb was one of the most underrated of studio aggregations.
They were fluent in all genres of music crossing all color lines and barriers.
I remember seeing them in a rare performance at
The Felt forum, which was part of Madison Squqre Garden in New York, under the direction of Bobby Martin. Pure electricity. They sounded just like, if not better than their recordings.
The interplay between the three guitarists was like woven silk.
I remember the alto saxophone player, Zack Zachary
whose solos harkened back to the good old days of jazz. We need more mfsb . Bring them back please!
