One of the best horn sections put together. The only other two horn sections that would rival them would be, of course, "Tower of Power' and "Earth, Wind, and Fire". And these two groups, especially Earth, are classic in their own rights.
I put some Tower of Power in my playlist and find their songwriting to be WAY below that of Chicago or more relevant to the discussion - Earth Wind and Fire. Earth Wind and Fire were an INCREDIBLE band! Killer harmonies, tons of hit songs that pass the test of time. Compare them with Coldplay and Brittney Spears and hold back the vomit.
