Buried Treasure: Chicago - Night & Day: Big Band (1995)
Night & Day: Big Band is the album Chicago released in 1995 two years after the ill-fated Stone of Sisyphus was recorded. When I first discovered it in a record store I immediately thought "OMG, more unnecessary dreck from this formerly great band." Then, a different thought popped into my head. "Hey, because it's a big band CD maybe the Chicago horn section is actually playing a prominent role again," and upon listening I was gratified to learn that their original horn section of James Pankow, Walt Parazaider, and Lee Loughnane were all on board and did a really fine job.
