The people who criticize this album definately need to listen AGAIN (or they just hate Chicago's sound). When I first heard this CD I couldn't believe that Chicago pulled it off! These are big band era tunes (40's) that are updated with great vocals, inventive arrangements, and end up sounding like..... well, Chicago. Much better than another power ballad.

Great performances by the guys in the band also. I'm wearing out this CD.

I remember seeing the commercials for NIGHT & DAY and thinking, "Ah, jeez, Chicago's dead." I knew CHICAGO 21 hadn't sold well, and I'd heard something about what had transpired with THE STONE OF SISYPHUS. But a big-band album? It seemed to me an act of laziness, as if the fellas couldn't muster up enough creativity to do a REAL album of original tunes. So in my pig-headed way, I avoided listening to NIGHT & DAY for about 8 years.

I'm proud to admit here how dumb I was.

I picked up NIGHT & DAY a year or so ago, and kicked myself for not getting it sooner (the same holds true for the Christmas album). Simply put, it's among the best, most consistent works Chicago has done. Everything, from the singing to the arrangements, is carried off with gusto and flair. And the horns (aided and abetted by Bill Watrous' big band) are front-and-center for the first time in years.

A rousing version of "Chicago," voiced by Robert Lamm, kicks off the set, followed by a ripping version of "Caravan," also voiced by Lamm, and featuring lightning-fast horn arrangements (trombonist James Pankow has said that this album contains some of his best work in years, and he's right). LATE NIGHT WITH LETTERMAN piano man Paul Schaffer guests on "Dream A Little Dream of Me," sung effectively by Jason Scheff. And then things get REALLY good.....

"Goody Goody" features Bill Champlin, and he just sings the spots off the song. The cool keyboards help a lot, too. An upbeat version of "Moonlight Serenade" follows, and then comes the title track. Underscored by an African drumbeat and featuring a gorgeous horn bridge, "Night and Day" is really something special.

This Chicago offering is a terrific blend of the original trademark Chicago style with an excellent choice of standards from the Big Band era. While some critics have criticized the band for "Chicagoizing" these "classics", that's exactly what makes this such a unique and exciting CD.
Most every other artist's foray into the Big Band standards arena has produced recordings that are so true to the original arrangements (e.g. Harry Connick, Linda Rondstadt), they might as well have been recorded in the '40's, this outing by the boys from the Windy City evidences a fresh approach to this timeless material.
Every track shows Chicago exploring the composition from a different angle: whether it is the mystically slow tempo of "Night and Day", the Latin-tinged "Sing, Sing, Sing", or the down-and-dirty blues rock shuffle of "Blues in the Night".
True, the horn charts sound like classic Chicago, and that's the beauty of it. Here, they sound as warm and fat as ever, and trombonist Jimmy Pankow weaves them into the arrangements with his proven skill. Nothing fancy, just melodic and interesting horn charts with the trademark Chicago horns' silky style.
Every track here is a winner. A great CD!

This album is a return to glory for Chicago. They have taken the big band tunes and turned them into their own. Robert Lamm sets the tone with "Chicago". This song highlights his altra smooth voice and all three horn players. Then "Caravan" jams. Nice to hear a xylophone on this one and some good guitar rifs. "Goody Goody" is a fun fun bouncy tune featuring Bill Champlin. "Moonlight Serenade" is very well done. Jason Scheff and Robert Lamm share vocals on this one. Walt plays flute. The tune changes from a ballad to a rocker at the end with a nice fade. The title track is great. I love the "Lion King" drum intro and James Pankow plays his trombone about as well as ever. "Blues In The Night" is a hard blues/rocker complete with Joe Perry of Aerosmith playing guitar with a smoking solo. Champlin's vocals are soulful as well as powerful. Finally, my favorite "Take The "A" Train" is wonderful. It kind of reminds me of "Beginnings"
Really, this is one of Lamm's best songs ever as well as one of Chicago's best albums ever.

This CD is not for everyone. These are contemporary, rock, r&B, and Latin (among others) re-arrangents of Big Band songs. Although it deserves at least a chance, true big-band fans will be divided on this one. Some will love it, some will think they butchered perfectly good songs. I loved it. I didn't like all the songs, such as "Chicago," "Goody Goody," "Blues in the Night," and "Don't Get Around Much Anymore." didn't care for "Take the A Train," and I did not like what they did with "In the Mood." But, dislikes aside, the rest is great.
"Chicago" didn't appeal to me at first, but it got better and better. Paul Shaffer's excellent piano work and Jade's soulful voices give a big boost to "Dream A Little Dream of Me." In the intro, Shaffer's fingers seem to be all over the keys at once. I did come to like the "Lion King"-ish re-working of "Night & Day" after some time, even though I hated it at first. "Moonlight Serenade" gets a lovely '80's ballad turn, with nice brass work. "Sophisticated Lady" is re-worked into a sexy R&B ballad, with an introduction that just pulls you right in. The singing is appropriately romantic, and the end, with its reprise of the introduction, is very gratifying. As a big fan of Latin jazz, I really loved "Caravan" and the biggest surprise here, the Latin arrangement of "Sing, Sing, Sing" with the Gipsy Kings. "Caravan" is in fine form here, with a standard but still infectious Latin phrase repeating under the lyrics and a harmon-muted trumpet playing the tune as it is sung.
