Chuck Mangione

Throughout the 1970s, Chuck Mangione was a celebrity. His purposely lightweight music was melodic pop that was upbeat, optimistic, and sometimes uplifting. Mangione's records were big sellers yet few of his fans from the era knew that his original goal was to be a bebopper. His father had often taken Chuck and his older brother Gap (a keyboardist) out to see jazz concerts, and Dizzy Gillespie was a family friend. While Chuck studied at the Eastman School, the two Mangiones co-led a bop quintet called the Jazz Brothers who recorded several albums for Jazzland, often with Sal Nistico on tenor. Chuck Mangione played with the big bands of Woody Herman and Maynard Ferguson (both in 1965) and Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers (1965-1967). In 1968, now sticking mostly to his soft-toned flügelhorn, Mangione formed a quartet that also featured Gerry Niewood on tenor and soprano. They cut a fine set for Mercury in 1972, but otherwise Mangione's recordings in the '70s generally used large orchestras and vocalists (including Esther Satterfield), putting the emphasis on lightweight melodies such as "Hill Where the Lord Hides," "Land of Make Believe," "Chase the Clouds Away." and the huge 1977 hit (featuring guitarist Grant Geissman) "Feels So Good." After a recorded 1978 Hollywood Bowl concert that summed up his pop years and a 1980 two-LP set that alternated pop and bop (with guest Dizzy Gillespie), Mangione gradually faded out of the music scene. In the '70s, Chuck Mangione recorded for Mercury and A&M; in the '80s he had a couple of very forgettable Columbia albums, and had not been heard from in the '90s until a 1997 comeback tour found him in good form, having a reunion with his "Feels So Good" band. The Feeling's Back followed in 1999. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

Why does his album The Hill Where The Lord Hides not in his discography anywhere. Just loved that in vinyl. Can't find it anywhere else.
the horn solo on feels so good is one of the best ever.
My introduction to jazz....that ah ha moment as a young man. Made me appreciate those that came before him.
This is the song that made Chuck Mangione famous!
Coming home from football practice for Boise State in 1977. Good times indeed.
The drive with Dad and family to the Poconoes in Penn, the best memories ever..
it was this Album and his Bass Player Chuck Meeks, that led me to be the Jazz Fusion Bass Player , that I am today....!! :-)
I saw him when I was in grade school twice in my life time and the first time was about 10 and the 2nd time I was 12 years of age both times I met him and got kissed on the cheek I was thrilled and now I am 50 yrs old. it was about17 to 18 years ago it would be wonderful to see him again if his still with us.
I saw him live at college. There were maybe 100 in th audience. We sang happy birthday to his son over the phone. It was like sitting in a small auditorium, this one was huge, having a personal concert. Loved it.

I grew up on this man, he's the best!! This songs my favorite / land of make believe is too. So many great memories.
Where are ya Chuck, indeed. We miss you. So good and "great" live!
Esther Satterfield started a family and never went back to recording. Beautiful voice. Her album was never put on CD, but I grew up listening to Once I Loved. Great album.
What happened to Ester Saterfield?
A wonderful trip down memory lane. Doin' a little dance at work!

This song reminds me of being in my dad's home office as a four year old hearing this on his stereo...gre a t times and memories.
Framed and gave context to my early adult years...stil l does
Met him once at a benefit to raise money for High School uniforms at Stamford High School. He was amazing! Time for a comeback tour! I marched in a drum corps late 60's and he was a favorite. Children of Sanchez, amazing! Feel the love Chuck, we miss you man!

I grew up outside of Rochester and my high school band teacher was a jazz man and a fan and taught us all to love jazz and Mangione. I guess he even played backup once in a while. Thanks for the love of jazz Ned.

so cool!
Beautiful inspiring stuff that will last.

His music has always transported me and given peace -- our Jazz Ensemble played with his group in a guest concert and I will never forget it. Hill Where the Lord Hides remains my favorite.

Yo chuck is a bad dude I just got put on to his music. Got my ear happy.
Growing up as a lil trumpeter I wanted so badly to sound like Chuck,all my friends thought it was a waste of time. Well as I stand as a grown man I can appreciate so much more of Chucks style, no one can come close or beat all the freshness from him. Feel so good will be forever one of my favorites !!!!! CHUCK wherever you are thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your music !!!!!!!

I've always loved this tune and after all these years, it still sounds and feels so good to listen to. It definitely takes me back to a happier time!
handymandean
Chuck's music takes me back to a simple carefree time of my life. It's great to listen and remember not a happier time, just a different time in my life.
His music is beautiful clean clear and crisp. I thank a very dear friend for introducing his music to me. These were the best years of my life. Thanks JRD.
REAL MUSIC! Was back then, is now, and will continue to be!! So proud to have been raised during this era of real musicians!!
