When asked about playing Chicago's songs, woodwind player Joe Gotch said, "They are a horn-player's dream -- the perfect combination of jazz, soul and rock, with great lines."
Chicago fused rock, jazz, funk and soul into a sound all its own and had 23 gold, 18 platinum and 8 multi-platinum albums, and has sold more than 100 million records to date. In 2015, Billboard ranked Chicago ninth on its list of the hundred greatest artists of all time.
