The Legend of Chicago…
a band blew out of the windy city and into the music scene with a sound that was new, fresh and original. Since it's formation in 1967, this band has become one of the best-loved and most successful rock groups ever, thanks to their incredible sense of pop-savvy, high-energy performances, and innovative use of horns. In 1971, the release of an 8 movement ballet titled "Ballet for a Girl in Buchannon" (later to be known as "Make Me Smile") was the "Beginnings" of their unique style of music that would eventually define "jazz rock" for a generation of music fans. Their worldwide sales have topped 120 million records and include five consecutive #1 albums, 21 Top 10 and 35 Top 40 singles and boasts a fan base that spans all ages.
