Maze Featuring Frankie Beverly
Maze brought the Philly soul sound out to San Francisco in the mid-1970s and has never looked back. Their relaxed grooves and good moods have survived everything from disco to hip-hop without many stylistic changes. Their blueprint has always been Marvin Gaye's early- '70s recordings with that quiet intensity and sophisticated funk. Gaye himself was big booster and Maze's Frankie Beverly keeps his spirit alive.
