Cirt Gill & The JAM-A-DITTY BAND - Have a little faith in me 1980

Cirt Gill & The JAM-A-DITTY BAND was formed by Cirt Gill. In 1979 released a 12" record entitled "Turn This Disco Out" on Jam-A-Ditty Records. This 12inch is actually funky dance music. It was recorded in 1979 and got airplay in many clubs in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Florida. The featured vocalist is Kevan Tynes, formerly a lead singer with the Mighty Majors from Greensboro, NC.
The next year they released a 7" record entitled "Have A Little Faith In Me / Put The Music In Your Ear" featuring Jimmy Person on Jam-A-Ditty Records. Both of them were included on the album in 1983 under the name JPQ Quintessence on the same label. Charles Carlton and Jimmy Person on guitars, Cirt Gill on bass, Larry Clay on drums and Talib Din on keyboards. Lead vocal by Jimmy Person. Produced by Earl Gill.

This is AMAZING!!! Cirt Gill is my God-Father, and I just so happened to goole him and this is what popped up!!! I have never heard any of his old school music, but he has been a GREAT influence in my music life!!! I love his new jazz music, and his Christmas stuff!!!

Nice! He was my Recording Engineering teacher before he retired, and I remember him mentioning a few of his records.
