Upon Chuck Mangione's signing with A&M, his music underwent a softening process; everything would become subordinate to the pretty tunes that seemed to pour out of the horn player with honeyed ease. However, the tunes on Chase the Clouds Away aren't as catchy as his earlier ones, and Mangione is starting to run those Spanish chordal patterns into the ground. Mangione's flügelhorn work begins to show some signs of wear here, and he now doubles on gently phase-shifted Rhodes electric piano, often reserving it for the intros

Chuck Mangione's mellow-toned flugelhorn and engaging compositions laid the groundwork for what would later become the smooth jazz movement. Growing up in Rochester as a Dizzy Gillespie-inspired bop trumpeter, Mangione and his piano-playing brother Gap formed the Jazz Brothers and recorded three straight ahead albums for the Riverside label in the early '60s. Following up on the success of Chase the Clouds Away, Mangione would score an even greater success with 1977's Feels So Good, which some consider to have jump-started the whole smooth jazz movement. Born and raised in Rochester, New York, Mangione came up emulating trumpeter and bop pioneer Dizzy Gillespie.
