Whistle was an American 1980s hip hop and contemporary R&B group that comprised Jazzy Jazz, Kool Doobie, and DJ Silver Spinner. They later brought in Kraze and then Terk after Kool Doobie left the group to go solo. Its biggest hit single as a rap group was "(Nothing Serious) Just Buggin’" in 1986. The group's first two albums, Whistle, released in 1986, and Transformation, released in 1988, were produced by the Kangol Kid from UTFO and DJ Howie Tee. Kangol and Howie brought in keyboardist/sound wizard, Gary Pozner (who had already become a staff producer at Select Records), to handle the sound sampling and help with the beat creation. Whistle released a third album, Always and Forever, in 1990, also produced by Kangol Kid, and a fourth album, Get The Love, in 1992.
