Friends & Love... A Chuck Mangione Concert

Chuck Mangione was invited to conduct a Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra* 
concert in May of 1970, and was given full rein of the affair.  The result 
is contained in this album - a concert which Chuck composed for a full 
symphony orchestra and six superbly accomplished soloists, imaginatively 
staged with special visual effects, and performed before a standing-room-only 
crowd of over 3,500.  This concert was videotaped by WXXI in Rochester, New York, 
under grants from the Eastern Educational Television Network, the Corporation 
for Public Broadcasting, and the R. T. French Co.

Mangione's music is strongly rooted in the jazz idiom, but he is reluctant 
to categorize his compositions:  " 'Friends & Love was a gathering of 
musicians from a variety of backgrounds, each one of whom contributed 
to the whole.  When the music is honest and full of love, labels aren't 
important and people will listen with an open mind".

Listen friends                          Out of hearts, confused by war
Take my hand and step outside           Let answers show -
Let's look around -                     Let's all forgive - 
Look ahead -                            And all begin to LIVE ...
And into ourselves ...

In our minds                            Listen friends
Let there be a peaceful glow            Take one night and kiss the sky.
And call it love -                      Let's all be free - 
Open up -                               Let's join hands -
And let it flow ...                     And feel LOVE ...
