Title - 'The Best of Chuck Mangione' (Columbia/Legacy)
Artist - Chuck Mangione
Chuck Mangione is a skilled flugelhorn player. But his real strengths are his songwriting and arrainging abilities. He has the talent to take basic themes and turn them into wonderful musical experiences. He also has attracted some of the best soloists out there to participate in his vision. This is a pretty good record overall. My favorite tracks are the Jazz classic "Feels So Good" which won a Grammy for Jazz Record of The Year in 1977. I would HIGHLY recommend this to anyone interested in finding out what Mangione is all about.
