I also saw Chuck live in the early 80's at a local county college. That's one of my favorite instrumental songs.King Of The Hill educated us in music.. not just propane!
Saw this guy live, he had us captivated.. pure class.
Chuck Mangione - Feels So Good.
I just had a song pop into my head for absolutely no reason, but I was sure it was a Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass track.Great gateway bloke to jazzy stuff.. Lot of folk are nervous to dip the toe in..
Herb Alpert - Rotation.
Steely Dan were a funny band cos a few of their 'rock numbers' such as Reelin' In The Years and Rikki Don't Lose That Number were pretty good and 'catchy rock songs' but some of their other stuff had a definite 'jazz feel' to them. Do It Again was a good number.When you toss in a Latino feel..
Steely Dan - Do It Again.
