Feels So Good—Chuck Mangione in Warsaw

American jazz composer and multi-instrumentalist Chuck Mangione will be appearing at Warsaw’s Kongresowa Hall Sept. 25. Mangione specializes in trumpet and flugelhorn but also plays keyboards occasionally.

Chuck and his pianist brother Gap were born in Rochester in the state of New York to Italian immigrant parents. They recorded three albums with The Jazz Brothers, a group they led in the 1950s. Chuck studied at Rochester’s prestigious Eastman School of Music from 1958 to 1963 and then joined Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers as a trumpeter. He has since gone on to work with Woody Herman, Maynard Ferguson, Steve Gadd, Dizzy Gillespie and many others.

Chuck Mangione gained worldwide popularity in the late 1970s. His composition “Chase the Clouds Away” was the theme of the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal, Quebec, while “Give It All You Got” was used at the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, New York.

The title track from Mangione’s album Bellavia won the 1977 Grammy Award for Best Instrumental Composition. He picked up his second Grammy in 1979 in the Best Pop Instrumental Performance category for his album Children of Sanchez, the soundtrack to Hall Bartlett’s film of the same name. The title track is probably Mangione’s best known tune after “Feels So Good.”
