This R&B vocalist and songwriter from the Philly soul heyday should not be confused with the James Harris who became known as Jimmy Jam. Harris and the other members of his band the Intrigues, including Alfred Brown, came up with "In a Moment" at a moment when Jimmy Jam would have been about ten years old. Bobby Martin and Thom Bell were developing a trademark sound for hits by 1969, when the dynamic duo had its own production and arrangement moment with "In a Moment," creating a hit for the group in the process. Yew, a label and not the reader, originally released what turned out to be the Intrigues' biggest hit, although there would also be hit parade moments in 1971 with "The Language of Love" as well as "Fly Girl" more than a dozen years later.
