This 1989 concert captures Mr Mangione leading a sextet of solid musicians through a series of latino-spiced jazz. Percussions abound on this DVD, held together by the idiosyncratic fugelhorn stylings of Mr Mangione. Chuck pulls double duty here, as he also sits behind the electric piano throughout most of the tracks. Surrounded by a good ensemble, Mr Mangione transports the listener to balmier climates through his easily accessible and warm melodies. Unfortunately, interspersed among some solid instrumental numbers, are vocal tracks which slow things down considerably.

The Best of Chuck Mangione collects various tracks from the smooth jazz pioneer's '80s Columbia recordings. While not as influential as Mangione's '70s output, his '80s albums retain much of what made him so popular an artist – catchy hooks, lush production and his clear, crisp trumpet sound. Included are such standout tracks as "Journey to a Rainbow," "Love Bug Boogie" and "Memories of Scirocco." Oddly, a live version of "Land of Make Believe" and the single version of "Feels So Good" make it on to this collection. These '70s hits don't really belong here, but should satisfy casual fans looking for his most popular recordings alongside his mid-career stuff.

Lambasted by some (both here and elsewhere) for being blatantly commercialized, it's true that this 1986 album is a sharp change of direction from the days of "Feels So Good" (perhaps the single most recognized song in the world of elevator jazz), but like most Chuck Mangione albums, the production and musicianship is near flawless, and as always, undeniably melodic. The cool and haunting "Sweet Cheryl Lynn" (which may or may not be named in honor of the famous disco singer; I'm really not sure) is, in any case, one of the album's strongest selections, also excellent is the slick, smooth "Secret Of Love" which gets a lot of help from an anonymous but pleasant sounding female vocalist. The album's finest moment, however, is the crisply atmospheric and uber-funky "Rockin' At Red Rocks," which not only incorporates hip-hop of all things, but does so surprisingly well for an artist who would normally be less than enthusiastic to tread such territory.

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.

Thanks to the Latin-inflected title track, Children of Sanchez became another huge hit for Chuck Mangione. The title song even earned him a Grammy for Best Pop Instrumental Performance, and serious jazz listeners will spot a problem with that award – it was for pop, not jazz. That, of course, is an accurate assessment of Mangione's music, since there isn't much improvisation on the album at all. Instead, there's a selection of Spanish- and Latin-flavored instrumentals, arranged as if to give the impression that the album is a song cycle. If so, it's a song cycle/concept album that doesn't go anywhere. Nevertheless, there's enough pleasant music here to satisfy fans of his pop stylings.

Though much less expansive than Mangione's other Mercury concerts, Land of Make Believe is the most successful of the lot, a winning combination of attractive tunes, big-thinking orchestrations, just enough jazz content, and a genuinely felt sense of idealism. Here there is no dead weight; all of the material is very engaging and the combined forces of Mangione's quartet and the Hamilton (Ontario) Philharmonic are on fire. This would be Mangione's most irresistible attempt at embracing the whole world of music - and for awhile, it was possible to believe that he would become a major unifying figure in American music. Alas, thus far this would be the last full flowering of that promise. ~ Richard S. Ginell

20th Century Masters: The Millennium Collection - Chuck Mangione gathers ten of the jazz-pop maestro's best-known performances, including "Land of Make Believe," "Feels So Good," "Chase the Clouds Away," and "Children of Sanchez." As with the other Mangione compilations available, 20th Century Masters focuses on his '70s heyday, and while this collection doesn't offer anything particularly different ~ AllMusic
