Earth, Wind, & Fire is the debut album released on Warner Bros. The music on this album is much tougher and more raw than the sound the group later became famous for. The vocals are very much a collaborative effort. Leads are freely traded, and many lines are sung by multiple voices.

White founded Earth, Wind & Fire in Chicago in 1969. In 1967, he'd replaced Redd Holt in the popular jazz group the Ramsey Lewis Trio, where he was introduced to the kalimba, an African thumb piano he would use extensively in future projects. Although I Am became EWF's sixth straight multi-platinum album, there were signs that the group's explosion of creativity over the past few years was beginning to wane. 1980's Faces broke that string, after which guitarist McKay departed. While 1981's Raise brought them a Top Five hit and R&B chart-topper in "Let's Groove," an overall decline in consistency was becoming apparent.
A very special thank you to LA County supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas for proclaiming Earth, Wind & Fire Day in LA County yesterday at Jazz At Drew where we performed for a beautiful audience.
