Fat Larry’s Music group was an enjoyable Philadelphia funk music group, fronted by drummer “Body fat” Larry Wayne. Fat Larry’s Music group never obtained any major strikes, but their singles for Stax, Dream, and Omni had been prototype past due-’70s and ’80s East Coastline jazz-tinged funk. Trumpeter and flutist Artwork Capehart, trombonist and alto saxophonist Jimmy Lee, saxophonist Doug Jones, keyboardist Erskine Williams, guitarist Ted Cohen, bassist Larry Labes, and percussionist Darryl Give finished the lineup. Their finest song visually was “BECOME YOU UNDERSTAND,” a 1982 tune having a surging bass collection and basic but catchy lyric refrain. Wayne also used the Delphonics and Blue Magic and handled the group Slick. An excellent performer and charismatic character, James died extremely prematurely in 1987 at age group 38.
