We gladly open the evening with a beautiful song by The Gap Band, named Outstanding.
The Gap Band was an American R&B and funk band that rose to fame between the 1970s and 1980s.
The band consisted of three members, actually also brothers: Charlie, Ronnie, and Robert Wilson, along with other artists.
The Gap Band was named after some streets, Greenwood, Archer, and Pine, located in the historic Greenwood neighborhood.
The band released its first album in 1974 and it was active until 2010, and they sang mainly in Funk, boogie, electro-funk, R&B, soul and disco music genres.
Back to our song, the free Outstanding piano sheet music is a song released by the Gap Band, as part of their album named Gap Band IV.
The song was written by Raymond Calhoun and it was released in November 1982 as a funk music genre song.
The free Outstanding piano sheets reached number one on the US R&B Singles Chart in 1983 and are one of the band’s signature songs and one of their biggest hits.
Once released, Outstanding peaked at number 51 on the Billboard Hot 100 and it was genuinely appreciated by the fans and critics.
With a length of 3:19 minutes in the album version and 6:13 minutes in the extended version of the song, Outstanding’s composition entertains us with its unique rap rhythm.
Because of its success, the song has been covered by many artists over the years, for example, Kenny Thomas’ version in 1990, or Andy Cole’s version in 1999.
You can enjoy Outstanding at your piano at home starting from today, as we made it available on our website and if you have questions or maybe a request, do not hesitate to contact us.
