James Chance and the Contortions (initially known simply as Contortions, a spin-off group is called James White and the Blacks) is a musical group led by saxophonist and vocalist James Chance, formed in 1977. They were a central act of New York City's downtown no wave music scene in the late 1970s, and were featured on the influential compilation No New York (1978).

Thus, Chance became James White (as a nod to James Brown), the Contortions became the Blacks, and his music, previously a twisted, experimental brand of avant-jazz, became a disco/funk/free jazz hybrid. As bizarre as the fusion of Albert Ayler and Giorgio Moroder might sound, Off White works primarily because Chance commits to both sides of the music.

The Contortions were the funkiest of the lot, led by James Chance on vocals and screeching sax. They became "James White and the Blacks" for their second album (presumably taking another name to get around Contortions record contracts). Off White, a sleazy, jazzier, lounge-disco record, "did to disco what they had done to the funk". A more disco version of the Contortions hit Contort Yourself was offered up with some other tracks that included a sultry cover of "Heatwave" and an orgasmic phone call with Lydia Lunch on Stained Sheets
