Info for Bellavia (Remastered)
Here is a Fantastic album featuring Chuck Mangione and it should make a Wonderful addition to any Collection!
A grammy winning album played live in the studio without any overdubs or corrections. Dedicated to his parents, Chuck is the result of the support they have given him and his music all along his career. This feels a little bigger than his usual sound, mostly through the addition of the orchestra, but also because of the arrangement of some of the material. If you like Chuck, you'll like this. Very "deco" feels to the cover and photos too.
"This quick follow-up to Chase the Clouds Away was designed as sort of a portrait of the bustling Mangione family home (Bellavia being his mother's maiden name). Certainly there is more energy on tracks like "Listen to the Wind," the big band streaks of "Torreano," and the appropriately revolving riffs of "Carousel" than on the previous record, with Joe LaBarbera, Gerry Niewood, and Chip Jackson forming the core of support for Chuck's more vigorous orchestral writing. Chuck appears on the conductor's podium, flugelhorn, Rhodes electric piano and -- on "Dance of the Windup Toy" (otherwise dominated by an unnecessary LaBarbera drum solo) -- celeste, acquitting himself well in all regards. While you don't get the instant buzz of the best Mercury-period music here, this is still one of Mangione's better A&M releases." (Richard S. Ginell, AMG)
