You mean the band or the musicians?

The players are of course stellar.  As a bass player Id donate a body part to play with a drummer like that...  but really what blew me away was the arranging.  That keyboard guy (arranger) has quite the ear.

Members of Chicago were involved in the 1973 movie Electra Glide in Blue, both as actors and writing music for the score.
Terry Kath and Peter Cetera both had acting roles in the film.
It was a great period piece with beautiful cinematography in Monument Valley.

I played guitar in Toronto's Humber College "A" band many years ago. And just started a separate topic about these guys, I'm blown away!

Saw them right after CTA was released at a small venue here in Houston. Maybe 40 people there. Phenomenal, they were young and on FIRE!! Saw them a short time later right when Chicago II was released at the Houston Music Hall. Same thing, just cooking. The rhythm section was a machine. Kath was certainly known for his extraordinary lead playing, but his rhythm playing was also incredible.
Saw them again right after Chicago IV was released, and it was not the same at all. Cetera was playing a fretless, the tightness was missing, and the horn section appeared to be stoned or drunk, very sloppy.
With the loss of Kath (everything he added, voice, energy, playing, etc) they seemed to become complacent. I understand the label was trying to turn them into a pop band backing up Cetera, even suggesting they ditch or limit the horn section
From what I've heard they are playing at a high level once again, although with a lot of new faces.

What years were you there? I was there in 72 or 73 for a few years. Had some great musicians come out of that school.

We must have been there at the same time as those guys were there when I went. I majored in arranging with Ron Collier.
