You've got this one listed twice. Do you want to keep it at #18 and bump everything else up?
I changed it to #18 only now.

Chuck Mangione (278) played with Jazz Messengers for a while. Put together 80 min of cool jazzy rock in the 70s that still sounds good which is unusual. Of course he had the jazz police after him. Check out 20th Masters and the Children of Sanchez album / soundtrack.
