    I totally agree, and grew up listening to Chuck, and playing along with his records. One of my favorites is Last Dance.

    Europeans can play flugel too...




    Notice that Derek switched to trumpet for the high energy altissimo stuff



    These are just actors, but the recording behind is really good though. Gorgeous flugel sound.

    I can't help it but mention the German um-pah repertoire though...

    Certainly this one is somewhere near the top.
    YouTube - Chuck Mangione Quartet - Land Of Make Believe

    The first time I heard this I was dozing in a chair and it came on the radio. I honestly could not tell for awhile if it was real or part of a dream. It just seemed other-worldly at first. I think this may have been the actual arrangement although there are many. I also like the vocal version.
