THE SALSOUL ORCHESTRA was the brainchild of once
MFSB member and legendary vibraphonist, Vince Montana Jr.
Formed in 1974 THE SALSOUL ORCHESTRA, house band
for the remarkable Salsoul Records, sometimes featured up to 50 members amongst
its ranks including a number of former musicians from MFSB of the Gamble &
Huff fronted Philadelphia International Records and fused elements of Funk,
Latin, Disco and Philly Soul into their compositions.
Conducted by Montana, THE SALSOUL ORCHESTRA began
an eight-year recording period in 1975 releasing eleven sensational albums
during that time featuring production input from Tom Moulton, Stan Lucas,
Patrick Adams and Bunny Sigler through the years.
