The group’s first charting single, Kool and the Gang, a horn-driven, highly rhythmic instrumental dance track, was followed by a steady string of similar singles through 1976. The band’s commercial breakthrough came in 1973 with the album Wild and Peaceful, which featured the singles Funky Stuff, Jungle Boogie, and Hollywood Swinging, all of which reached the rhythm-and-blues Top Ten. Kool and the Gang’s sound was an innovative fusion of jazz, African rhythms, and street funk that established the band as an innovator in black music until the onset of the disco era. However, when the group’s single Open Sesame was reissued on the soundtrack for the motion picture Saturday Night Fever in 1977, Kool and the Gang shifted emphasis toward pop and disco.
