In the beginning, there was Chicago Transit Authority, with its ground-breaking blend of Pop and Jazz … featuring the songs and the singing of Robert Lamm. This ‘Avant Garde’ music found incredible international success with more than a few albums.
Here is a new collection of Robert Lamm songs, which will remind you of the eclectic approach of those early Chicago albums, but with a very modern flavor!
Lamm says: “I’ve been attempting with this new album “Subtlety&Passion” and my previous album, “In My Head” to create rich harmonic structure, with great live players, and loops, beats, samples. . . . . BUT WITH MELODIES AND CHORD CHANGES (imagine that!) I wanted to avoid ‘one chord’ songs, we get too much of that from otherwise really great young singers, rappers, and bands.”
Amen, Robert. Kudos for hitting this one out of the park and into the parking lot! S&P is truly worthy to be called a masterpiece.
