About Take 6

The idea of Take 6 began to percolate in the mind of vocalist Claude McKnight in the early 1980s. While attending Alabama's Oakwood College, McKnight was the founder of a cappella group The Gentlemen's Estate. Some try outs and four able voiced young men later, the earliest incarnation of Take 6 would be born, though it would be some years before they became known by their current name. The group became official in 1987, signing with major label Warner Brothers and quickly getting to work releasing a slew of full length albums and singles. It wasn't long until they were receiving national recognition at the Grammys, winning two awards from their debut album and also charting all over Billboard. The group began collaborating with various major musicians and various artists, including the legendary Stevie Wonder and visionary director Spike Lee. They began to experiment across other mediums, being featured in multiple television series, movies, and even made an appearance on the iconic late night comedy sketch show Saturday Night Live.

The band went through various shakeups, but continued to release a non stop stream of albums that kept them on the public mind and reminded everyone that Take 6 was the cutting edge of a cappella performance. They began to branch out and experiment with different incarnations of jazz and urban gospel, including a brief stint with instruments instead of their pure a cappella style. As the years went by, the band has oscillated between R&B sounds to Jazz purity, with their most recent forays leaning in the direction of smooth traditional jazz. Over the 2000s the band would receive three more Grammy nominations, a testament not just to their talent but also to their staying power as contemporary and constantly evolving musicians.


Previous Hits

The band's 1988 debut Take 6 would be their greatest commercial success to date, going certified platinum and being one of the biggest breakout albums of the decade. Besides the multiply Grammys won, the album also picked up a few Dove Awards for best song, best album, and best group. The album received a perfect rating from media critic Allmusic, which commended the album on its unique mixture of jazz and gospel sounds. The album would be a non stop succession of one great song after another, with the singles "Mary", "Gold Mine", and "He Never Sleeps" being exceptional standouts.

The band would strike gold again in 1994, dropping the album Join the Band to widespread commercial success. The album would feature the mega hits "My Friend" (featuring legend Ray Charles) and "Biggest Part of Me", and even saw a guest appearance from Queen Latifah on the track "Harmony". The album would go certified gold and cemented Take 6's place as a dependable source of a cappella greatness.

2008 would be another huge year for the band, releasing The Standard which garnered three grammy nominations and various Dove award nominations. The Standard carried a slew of hits, including "Shall We Gather at the River" and "A Tisket a Tasket", and was solid testament to the group's relevance into the new century.


Trivia

The band has gone through multiple names for the group, including the name "Alliance" as well as "The Gentlemen's Estates Quartet".

The band has been in the political spotlight at times, performing for multiple United States presidents as well as at the Democratic National Convention.
