Jeffrey Daniel, Jody Watley and Howard Hewett who became third male lead vocalist of the trio in 1979. Jody Watley was noted in Jet Magazine May 1, 1982 as being Choreographer and Costume Designer Wardrobe for Shalamar. "Fashion design is something the multi-talented Jody has had a taste for since childhood, and it may lead to her own boutique one day. "So this is kind of an outlet to use some of my ideas. I use the group as a guinea pig." She laughs. The experiments, though, seems to work, "If it lays, it stays," Jeffrey says, "and she's done a good job so far."
The dazzling choreography that has helped make the group such a popular stage attraction is also Jody's department."

SHALAMAR Disco Gardens

Disco Gardens is the second album by American R&B group Shalamar, released in 1978 on the SOLAR label. It features the line-up of Gerald Brown, Jeffrey Daniel and Jody Watley, and was the only Shalamar album on which Brown appeared.
Disco Gardens was less successful than Shalamar's debut Uptown Festival, peaking at #52 on the R&B chart and #171 on the Billboard chart, although it is considered a superior recording to its predecessor, and contains early indications of what was to become the distinctive "SOLAR sound", most notably on the single release "Take That to the Bank".

"On The Scene" Magazine March/April 1978 article from cover story "Shalamar Out To Do It All" for second album "Shalamar Disco Gardens." The album went on to produce one of the groups biggest singles "Take That To The Bank."  

Excerpt: "Jeffrey Daniels, Jody Watley and Gerald Brown comprise Shalamar, an exciting new vocal/dance trio distributed by Solar Records, distributed by RCA Records. The world may best know Shalamar for "Uptown Festival," the avant garde disco hit that took the nation by storm.." "Now Shalamar welcomes you to "Shalamar's Disco Garden," an invigorating illumunious musical fantasyland of an LP that establishes this band as more than one hit wonders. And don't use the word disco too loosely here, for Shalamar offers the fluttering essence of contemporary music -- lively R&B/pop mixtures and sultry ballads." "Many may doubt Shalamar's musical credibility because of it's storybook beginnings. Nevertheless, what you see is but a small portion of what you get." "Personally", beams Jeffrey, " I'd would like to become an entertainment standard--one of those entertainers known for giving us a lifetime of showbiz..I'd like to develop my skills as a songwriter and musician. Shalamar will give me that chance." "Gerald would also like to further his experience in entertainment, for him Shalamar is the topping of a singing career that began at thirteen. Jody, probably the most business minded of the troupe dreams of a chic dress shop to open after her career is in full swing. Those things are in the future. Right now the musical threesome is eagerly looking forward to the thrills, spills, and excitement that come along with being a group as fresh, new and exciting as Shalamar"
