Though they were the most revered group of session musicians in Chicago, the Pieces Of Peace only managed to issue one recording during their larger-than-life existence. As a live band, they backed almost every major Chicago artist at one time or another, including luminaries such as Jackie Wilson, Syl Johnson, Gene Chandler, and the Artistics. But in their spare time, they had developed a unique, hard funk sound with Afro-centric sensibilities that had one foot in the mainstream R&B of their "day job," and the other in Chicago’s underground scene led by Phil Cohran and his Artistic Heritage Ensemble and the Pharaohs. "Pass It On” is an early step in the development of the Pieces Of Peace sound. Percussion heavy, lengthy bass vamps, and jazzy solos that meander well off page forced the jam to be broken out over two sides of a 45.
