Their sound fused jazz, pop and horn-and-hook-filled harmonies, creating some of the most listenable music to ever come off the radio. They were Chicago, a band whose multiple hits (“25 or 6 to 4,” “Saturday in the Park,” “Wishing You Were Here”) helped lay the soundtrack of the ‘70s and ‘80s. Director Peter Pardini’s footage-filled documentary shows how their tapestry of sound came from the Midwest, from serious rock chops, and — with the exception of a tussle with the transit authority of Illinois’s biggest city, from which their original name derived — professional and personal friendship, which helped them when tragedy and conflict arose. As Chicago gets ready to be inducted into the Rock and Roll hall of Fame, this rollicking, rolling behind-the-scenes film helps it all come alive again.
