Rahmlee appears on most of these recordings in conjunction with the ORIGINAL Earth, Wind & Fire horn section; independently known as The Phenix Horns Esquire.
It was Rahmlees versatile and unique musical style that made him so in demand and brought him to the attention of Earth, Wind & Fire. Along with the late Don Myrick, the late Lui Lui Satterfield and Michael Harris, he spent 8 years establishing The Phenix Horns section as an integral part of the musical act awarded Gold and Multi-Platinum albums, and numerous Grammys. Earth, Wind & Fire made musical history as the worlds greatest pop/rock band. Their worldwide tours are still talked about as some of the best and most successful ever staged.
After noting their explosive presence with Earth, Wind & Fire, Phil Collins initiated a musical coup, and The Phenix Horns became an important element of his decade long string of Gold and Platinum recordings, as well as very successful world tours.
