Bobby Moore & the Rhythm Aces

Bobby Moore & the Rhythm Aces were an American soul group from Montgomery, Alabama.

Career

Tenor saxophonist Bobby Moore first put the group together in 1952, while he was stationed at Fort Benning, Georgia; they toured the south playing at military events and clubs for a few years. When he moved to Montgomery in 1961, Moore put together a new group, featuring his son, Larry Moore (saxophone), Chico Jenkins (vocals, guitar), Marion Sledge (guitar), Joe Frank (bass), Clifford Laws (keyboards), and John Baldwin, Jr. (drums). They did local Alabama gigs and played behind national touring acts such as Sam Cooke and Ray Charles before signing to Checker Records in 1966. After recording at Fame Studios, they released their first single, "Searching For My Love", which hit #27 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart [http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=11:djfoxqtgldhe~T5 Billboard Singles] , Allmusic.com] and sold more than one million copies.

In 1969, Checker released their last single, "Your Love and My Love Together", and then released the group.

The Rhythm Aces continued to perform as a group in Alabama with a constantly shifting lineup into the 2000s. Bobby Moore died of kidney failure on 1 February 2006, and his son, Larry Moore, became the group's leader.
