man oh man...i don't have too many fond memories of my dad growing up, but chuck mangione's music is definitely one of the best. dad played the feels so good & children of sanchez albums on our home stereo system for what seemed like hours each day. and i loved every minute of it. 30 years later, chuck mangione & both of those masterpiece cd's still sound every bit as fresh and skilled as they did then. this is the genesis of smooth jazz; no fan of old school, quiet stormy, r&b instrumental music should be without chuck mangione's feels so good & children of sanchez cd's.
Classic musician. I listened to Land of Make Believe all the time when I was kid, and I just dug it up a few days ago... omg so amazing. :) Also, I wish I could play trumpet as well as him. He's basically all the innocence that I don't have :X
