Album Review

Scott Yanow []

Flugelhornist Chuck Mangione became a household name during the 1970s and '80s due to some pop hits, but this LP (now out-of-print) actually contains his finest playing. Mangione, who also contributes some background electric piano, teams up here with Gerry Niewood (tripling on tenor, soprano and flute), electric bassist Tony Levin and drummer Steve Gadd. Together they stretch out on lengthy versions of ''High Heel Sneakers,'' ''Legend of the One-Eyed Sailor,'' ''Sixty-Miles Young'' and ''St. Thomas.'' The fire heard during these performances is a sharp contrast to Mangione's more popular recordings. Well worth searching for.
