Chicago Back With First All New Album In Eight Years
Chicago is back with its 36th album -- Now: Chicago XXXVI (36). The set was the brainchild of two of the band's co-founders, trumpeter Lee Loughnane (pronounced: Locknane) and keyboardist Robert Lamm, who led the band into recording the band's first new original set in eight years during stolen moments off stage using Pro Tools, which is a portable digital audio studio.
 
Robert Lamm told us that recording on the road caught them operating as a well oiled machine and invigorated them all by trying something new: "Between Lee Loughnane and I, what we decided to do was record -- because nobody lives in the same town anymore (laughs) -- try to record while we're on the road, so that required us researching and putting together a top notch, good sounding hard drive system that we could take with us and set up on a day off, either in a conference room, or hotel suite or somewhere -- or even on the bus -- and start hacking away at these songs."
