One of the finer groups of the early-'90s acid jazz scene, the short-lived Young Disciples featured Carleen Anderson (vocals, keyboards), Marc Nelson (bass, guitar, organ), and Femi Williams (percussion, programming).
Their debut single came in 1990 with "Get Yourself Together," which was followed in 1991 by the Top 20 U.K. hit "Apparently Nothin'." Road to Freedom, the group's lone album (aided by appearances from Masta Ace, Maceo Parker, Fred Wesley, and Pee Wee Ellis) was released on Talkin' Loud in the U.K., and was issued in the States through Polygram. After the group folded, Anderson went solo; both Nelson and Williams continued background studio work. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi
