New York City's Central Park on a bright summer day can be a magical place. And on "Saturday in the Park," Chicago singer-keyboardist-songwriter Robert Lamm preserved this sentiment in song. "I was rooming with him, and we were in Manhattan on the Fourth of July," saxophonist Walter Parazaider recalled. "Robert came back to the hotel from Central Park very excited after seeing the steel drum players, singers, dancers and jugglers. I said, 'Man, it's time to put music to this!'"
