The Players Association Biography (Wikipedia)

Players Association were a New York based, Vanguard Records studio group, put together by drummer / arranger Chris Hills and Danny Weiss in 1977.

Players Association recordings brought in session musicians such as Larry Coryell, Joe Farrell, David Sanborn, James Mtume, Mike Mandel and others. Whilst writing some of their own songs, the group mainly focused on covers. Their two biggest hits were "Disco Inferno," a cover of The Trammps tune, and their own composition "Turn the Music Up!"

"Disco Inferno" was an underground club hit in the United States and the United Kingdom, most notable for the piercing solos from Michael and Randy Brecker. They proved more popular in the United Kingdom, where they scored three chart singles (including "Turn the Music Up" which reached number 8) and one chart album, which also prompted a British tour, although after the release of five albums between 1977 and 1981, the association ended.
