FEELS SO GOOD is the popular breakthrough album for flugelhorn player and composer Chuck Mangione. His early '70's style was melodic, bright, and engaging, but 1977's FEELS SO GOOD was the disc that brought Mangione to big-selling popular acceptance. This disc has stood the test of time, with its creative ensemble playing full of delicacy and restraint, tasty solos (especially from guitarist Grant Geissman), and easygoing rhythms.
