When you think back to us going to New York and us trying to get our ideas together, some of the people who we ran into... Being Luther Vandross' first band; myself on drums and Paul on percussion along with Nile Rodgers on Guitar and Carlos Alomar of David Bowie on the other guitar, you think about meeting all these people and where it goes and what it does
Kleeer was an American New York-based funk, disco and post-disco band, which was formed in 1972 under the name The Jam Band, as a backup group to different disco bands and vocalists. The first song they cut as Kleeer, “Keeep Your Body Workin’,” was liked enough by Atlantic to be included on a compilation. The response from DJs was overwhelmingly positive and resulted in a recording contract.
