5.0 out of 5 stars Players Association Still Great 27 Aug 2005
Format:Audio CD
During the late seventies The Players Association comprised of New York based session musicians led by Chris Hills. Probably best remembered for "Turn The Music Up" which was their biggest hit single and also the title of their third album....but in my opinion "Born To Dance" was always the best of their work. Not one bad track, with the standouts being "Goin To The Disco" and "Disco Inferno"...listen to the tenor sax solo by Michael Brecker on "Inferno". Great jazz funk with more than a hint of disco...give it a listen and you won`t regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars a solidly bumpin' good time ! ! ! 3 Aug 2003
By Eddie Landsberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Looking at the cover of the original LP version (really hot Disco style chicks) you would have thought that this was typical "disco" schlock... something well suitable for a Hustle/Kung Fu mad '70s disco nostalgia freak... but really nothing more than a typical '70s instrumental "covers" type album Van McCoy style... flip the album over however, and you begin to realize that this album are not your typical disco paydirt super-orchestra of the "then" moment. Take the horn section : Michael Brecker, Dave Sanborn, Jon Faddis and Wayne Andre...
Though I'm pretty sure 99% of the people who wound up listening to this album were shaking their booties their local discos and roller rinks and not tapping their feet at Jazz clubs, this album has some amazingly funky and enjoyable blowing, including Jon Faddis's delightful / window shattering high energy/high note style of blowing... and someone (Sanborn ?) blows a very Lenny Pickett-like solo on DISCO INERNO. - - Without continuing to list the entire personell... let me just name three others... Leon Pendarvis (the organ guy from the SNL ban), Steve Kahn on guitar and M'Tume on percussion. - - While there's little doubt that these master Jazzmen at the time were out to making a living and cash a few paychecks, it can definitely be said that this was one of those Tower of Power and the Saturday Night Live Band type ensembles that used seasoned players to take pop and soul music to a level that even the most seasoned musician would have to stand back and dig... but don't get me wrong... all in all this album is FUN, FUN, FUN !
5.0 out of 5 stars Hard-to-find music 3 Feb 2013
By jai bie - Published on Amazon.com

Used to own on vinyl, with many other hard-to-find originals from the 60s-80s, especially in the R&B/funk genres. Classic music, classic cover, classic band. I appreciate the availability.
