The Salsoul Orchestra

The Salsoul Orchestra

Group HistoryThe orchestra was formed in 1974 in New York, United States and disbanded in 1982. Their music featured elements of Philadelphia soul, funk, latin and disco. The Salsoul Orchestra included up to 50 members with instrumental section, arrangers and conductors. The Salsoul Orchestra was conducted by Vincent Montana, Jr.Production duties, from 1978 to 1983, were by Tom Moulton, Stan Lucas, Patrick Adams and Bunny Sigler.The Salsoul Orchestra consisted of most of the original members of Philadelphia International's MFSB, who had moved on to Salsoul as the result of a disagreement with producers Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff over finances. Other members began performing as The Ritchie Family orchestra, and as John Davis and the Monster Orchestra. On later MFSB recordings, Gamble & Huff uses a new rhythm section which caused them to have a slightly different sound.Their song, "Love Break (Ooh I Love It)" has been sampled in rap songs such as 50 Cent's "Candyshop" and Eric B & Rakim's "Paid in Full", but most notably in Madonna's "Vogue".
