Maze

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
At a time when disco reigned supreme, Maze and Frankie Beverly took the R&B charts by storm with a smooth yet gritty soul/funk approach that rejected the disco beat entirely. Growing up in the soul hotbed of Philadelphia had a definite impact on Maze's distinctive sound, which owed as much to Marvin Gaye as it did to Philly soul.
