Rahmlee Michael Davis, trumpeter, composer, arranger, producer, Chicago native, recorded early in his career as a studio musician with such labels as Brunswick, Chess, Dakar, Curtom, Columbia and Capitol Records just to name a few.
Rahmlee has recorded with such noble artists as: Earth, Wind & Fire, Phil Collins, The Jacksons, Tyrone Davis, Frida (of ABBA), Jackie Wilson, The Whispers, Michael Jackson, Stanley Turrentine, The Sylvers, Side Affect, Rodney Franklin, B.B. King, The Chi-Lites, Barbara Acklin, The Artistics, Gene Chandler, Tupac Shakur, Curtis Mayfield, Snoop Dogg, Donny Hathaway, Ramsey Lewis, Young-Holt Unlimited, Minnie Riperton, Philip Bailey, The Emotions, Klique, Charles Earland, Macy Gray, Bobby Womack, Al McKay & The L.A. All Stars/The Earth, Wind & Fire Experience and countless others. Rahmlee appears on most of these recordings in conjunction with the ORIGINAL Earth, Wind & Fire horn section; independently known as “The Phenix Horns Esquire.”
It was Rahmlee‘s versatile and unique musical style that made him so in demand and brought him to the attention of Earth, Wind & Fire. Along with the late Don Myrick, the late Lui Lui Satterfield and Michael Harris, he spent 8 years establishing The Phenix Horns section as an integral part of the musical act awarded Gold and Multi-Platinum albums, and numerous Grammys. Earth, Wind & Fire made musical history as the world’s greatest pop/rock band. Their worldwide tours are still talked about as some of the best and most successful ever staged.
After noting their explosive presence with Earth, Wind & Fire, Phil Collins initiated a musical coup, and The Phenix Horns became an important element of his decade long string of Gold and Platinum recordings, as well as very successful world tours.
Rahmlee’s 2006 release “You Can’t Stop This!” is available. Other releases include, “Intimacy” on Rahm Records. “Intimacy” features The Phenix Horns Esquire, Larry Dunn, Robert Turner, Derf Reklaw Raheem, Al McKay and a host of other guest musicians. “Souljazzz” on Honest Records, and “Rise of the Phenix” on Headfirst Records.
