Chuck Mangione is one of several talented "discoveries" to be credited to Cannonball Adderley, who first heard Chuck as a teen-aged trumpet player co-leading a band with his brother Gap in their home territory of upstate New York. The debut album by the "Jazz Brothers" (as that band became known) was produced by Adderley, but Chuck's first solo effort--for Riverside Records' subsidiary Jazzland label--was put together by Orrin Keepnews. It gave the youngster the valuable support of a major-league rhythm section: Wynton Kelly, Sam Jones, and Louis Hayes (the latter two then key members of Cannonball's group), and launched a long and formidably successful career.
with Joe Romano, Wynton Kelly, Sam Jones, Louis Hayes
