No one had ever heard of the flugelhorn before this light, cheery album went double platinum, made Mangione a '70s jazz star and helped launch the career of guitarist Grant Geissman. "I can hear the title track in my head, and it really does feel good" gush groupies who appreciate how much emotion comes out when Chuck blows. "Yakety-yak" crack whackers of this "bland pop pap." * * * *

Recorded at Kendun Recorders, Burbank, CA. Small group. Pop/jazz yes, but it is too pretty to not enjoy. Platinum album.
