Chuck Mangione

Biography

Through the entire 1970s, Chuck Mangione was a celebrity. His purposely light-weight music was melodic pop which was upbeat, positive, and occasionally uplifting. Mangione’s information were big retailers yet handful of his followers from the period understood that his unique goal was to be always a bebopper. His dad had often used Chuck and his old brother Space (a keyboardist) out to observe jazz concerts, and Dizzy Gillespie was a family group friend. While Chuck analyzed in the Eastman College, both Mangiones co-led a bop quintet known as the Jazz Brothers who documented many albums for Jazzland, frequently with Sal Nistico on tenor. Chuck Mangione used the big rings of Woody Herman and Maynard Ferguson (both in 1965) and Artwork Blakey’s Jazz Messengers (1965-1967). In 1968, right now sticking mainly to his soft-toned flügelhorn, Mangione created a quartet that also presented Gerry Niewood on tenor and soprano. They slice a fine arranged for Mercury in 1972, but normally Mangione’s recordings within the ’70s generally utilized huge orchestras and vocalists (including Esther Satterfield), placing the focus on light-weight melodies such as for example “Hill Where in fact the Lord Hides,” “Property of Make Believe,” “Run after the Clouds Aside.” as well as the large 1977 strike (offering guitarist Give Geissman) “Feels SO EXCELLENT.” Following a documented 1978 Hollywood Dish concert that summed up his pop years along with a 1980 two-LP arranged that alternated pop and bop (with visitor Dizzy Gillespie), Mangione steadily faded out from the music picture. Within the ’70s, Chuck Mangione documented for Mercury and A&M; within the ’80s he previously several extremely forgettable Columbia albums, and was not heard from within the ’90s until a 1997 return tour discovered him in great form, getting a reunion along with his “Feels SO EXCELLENT” music group. The Feeling’s Back again implemented in 1999.
