The Gap Band had given themselves some big shoes to fill in the wake of their 1982 The Gap Band IV LP. It had, of course, spawned "You Dropped a Bomb on Me" - one of the defining songs of the decade and indeed of the contemporary funk genre. But with aplomb and finesse, the band returned the next year with The Gap Band V: Jammin' and only just missed its predecessor's number one chart position. From the opening instrumental "Where Are We Going," The Gap Band V: Jammin' is a slick, smooth set dominated by some archetypal Gap Band classics.

The Gap Band enjoyed huge success throughout the '70s and '80s with their unique sound and contribution to the Funk scene. LA producer, Lonnie Simmons, signed them to his label, Total Experience Records, setting in motion what would be the start of a long and prosperous relationship between The Gap Band and Simmons. The group scored many notable hits in the late 1970's and early 1980's before releasing this, GAP BAND V: JAMMIN', hot on the heels of their most successful album, GAP BAND IV. This album reached R&B and Pop and was certified Gold.
