Standing today at the corner of Michigan Avenue and Wacker Drive, it is hard to imagine the frontier wilderness that lay before Jean Baptiste Point du Sable , Chicago's first longtime resident of the city. Of African and French descent, du Sable arrived sometime in the 1770s and established a fur trading post on the Chicago River, near Lake Michigan. Du Sable's entrepreneurial spirit and intimate ties to what was, even then, a multicultural population, may have offered a glimpse—in retrospect—of Chicago's future. But it would take more than a century...

A major figure of the late 20th century associated with Chicago was Helmut Jahn, whose buildings are characterized by a pastiche of historical and exotic styles.

Soon Chaney was out and the act was reconstituted as the Young-Holt Unlimited. Under that name, the act hit in 1968 with the million-selling ‘Soulful Strut’, a US pop Top 5 hit. This instrumental was, in fact, the backing track to a Barbara Acklin single, ‘Am I The Same Girl?’, but with Floyd Morris’ piano part replacing the vocal line. Ironically, neither Young, nor Holt, was on the record as the instrumental was by the Brunswick studio...
