GREATEST HITS
20th Century Masters The Best of the Jazz Band

The Dazz Band formed in 1976 in Cleveland, OH.  The band initially was a mix of members of Bell Telefunk and Mother Braintree, but where later known as Kinsman Dazz after the street/lounge they were the house band for.  As Kinsman Dazz, the group landed a record deal in 1978 with 20th Century Records.  Their self-titled release hit shelves in 1978, and their second release, Dazz, soon followed.  The name Dazz is essentially a mix of the words "danceable" and "jazz". 

By 1980, the Kinsman Dazz band had shortened their name, and their first release as The Dazz Band was in 1980 (Invitation to Love on Motown Records).  The song "Shake It Up" was a minor hit from this album as was the song "Invitation to Love".  The song "Knock Knock", from their 1981 album Let the Music Play, also did fairly well.  It was their 1982 release, Keep It Live, that featured their first (and only) no. 1 R&B hit, "Let It Whip".  The song even landed the band a Grammy.      

It did not end there, for the Dazz Band.  Other notable songs you may remember include "On the One for Fun" from On the One (1982), "Joystick" and "Swoop (I'm Yours) from Joystick (1983), "Let It all Blow and Heartbeat from Jukebox (1984), "Hot Spot" from Hot Spot (1985), and "Single Girls" from Rock the Room (1988).

As years rolled on past the heyday of the 1980's, the Dazz Band continued their activity both in studio and on stage.  At the time of this writing, the latest release from the band was in 2001, and it was not clear whether or not they were still active.  At the time of this writing, the Dazz Band Discography was as follows:
