Block also managed the careers of James Brown’s horn section and funk music legends, Fred Wesley and Pee Wee Ellis; and subsequently, consulted Polygram Records on the multi-platinum selling James Brown, Box Set, “Star Time”.

Major Sound Studios, Block’s legendary recording studios based in both Los Angeles and New York City, became havens where musical harmonies were captured and hit songs were born. Major Hana Records, Mr. Block’s Hawaiian based record label, has released recordings of iconic Maui, Hawai’i artists including Kaleo Kaina and Uncle Boy Kanae. Over time, Block expanded his interests into music video, television and film production, using music as a tool to shape narratives and create immersive experiences.
