    Was wondering if there were any Chicago fans out there and if you're disappointed that they haven't done much in recent years as far as original material is concerned. Seems ashame since I really looked up to them as a trumpeter growing up in the 60's and 70's. They helped make it cool to be a horn player. What a great band.

    Hi!

    I'm 15 and have just heard of Chicago! Man do they do great stuff. Our band is playing an arrangement of 4 of their songs. 24 or 6 to 4, Saturday in the Park, Make me smile and Does anyone really know what time it is? I love playing this. So much fun. Can't wait to play it again!

    The re-release of their Christmas album has some awesome new arrangements. You should all check it out if you haven't already.
    It's a shame that they never released "Stone of Sisyphus." It's one of their best albums.

    Chicago's a pretty cool group....a friend turned me on to them last year and I've been trying to add some of their albums to my collection. What's the status on the group? Are they still "together" or did they seperate? They were before my era, so I'm not real familiar with their personel or whether they broke up.

    They're very much still together. I just saw them a few months ago, on their Christmas tour. Still rockin' as always!

    The name to remember is: Chicago Transit Authority. Terry Kath set the tone for rock guitar players to come.

    Chicago is awesome! I really like "Night and Day". It is cool because it all remakes of great standards. 8)
