“I hope that in 55 years, listeners will actually feel something about our music and our lyrics,” says the founding Chicago singer/keyboardist. Robert Lamm. “I mean, we’re all human. We all go through some variation of the same pain and joy at some point in our lives, and there’s a commonality to that. I hope listeners in the future will experience all of these feelings when listening to our music.
Add the Chicago trumpeter Lee Loughnane“One of the main reasons this album does so well is that when you put it on and play it, you hear something you didn’t quite expect to hear, and it immediately pulls you in musically and emotionally. .”
