2014 album from the classic Rock/Jazz/Pop outfit. NOW - CHICAGO XXXVI is the band's first new album of original material since the release of XXX in 2006, and once again these icons offer their signature fiery, Jazz-rooted brass arrangements over slick Pop Rock songs. When Chicago exploded onto the music scene with their stellar 1969 double-LP debut, the band's innovative fusion of up-front horns in a Rock 'n' Roll context and impeccable Pop sensibilities was an instant smash. According to Billboard chart history and stats, Chicago is second only to the Beach Boys as the most successful American Rock band of all time, in terms of both album and singles sales. Judged by album sales alone, as certified by the R.I.A.A., the band is still among the Top Ten best-selling U.S. groups in history.
