4 stars Chicago's "Night and Day: Big Band" is definitely a hidden gem! This album had the lowest chart success of any studio or live album that the band produced. Chicago was looking for a new direction after the rejection of their "Stone of Sisyphus" album by their record company. The result was this wonderful album that took many standards from a bygone era and incorporated Chicago's styling and famed horn section. After years of Chicago being led by Peter Cetera and producer David Foster, and then some more years trying to duplicate that success with different players, it's very rewarding to hear the instrument prowess of this once mighty band to be front and center again.

For a review on a prog site, there would be none as "NIght and Day" does not have any prog at all. As a very enjoyable album that sank more from it's lack of management backing as opposed to its material. I give Night and Day Big Band a very strong 4.
