Their first album which was named Fresh Aire
was launched in 1975, a year after the band got together. After that Fresh Air II
which was released in 1977 and later on in 1979 Fresh Aire III
was released, all under the name of Mannheim Steamroller, hoping the albums will become best sellers. The Fesh Aire
albums were comprised of the four seasons; spring, fall, summer and winter. What made these albums even more enjoyable was the fact that not only were they a mix of light jazz, simple classical music, but when the mood needed it to be, Davis would add a few instruments such as using a toy piano etc to it. Basically the duo used the instruments which were most suitable for the specific music piece and made it altogether more exciting. Not only was it enjoyable to produce these artistic tunes but they were entertaining to listen to as well. Jackson Berkey was very skillful at the keyboard and so was able to produce spectacular tunes on it. Chip Davis
also worked in partnership with composer and guitarist Mason Williams and together they released a new album with the name Classical Gas
in 1987. The album was entirely put together by Davis
while the music was collected by Mason Williams.
Later on Chip Davis explored other themes through his albums such as with Fresh Aire V
the Moon was covered, Fresh Aire VI
was based on the Greek mythology, Fresh Aire 7
was given to number 7 as it is and, Fresh Aire 8
was to explore the subject of infinity. The band later then performed these albums live in concerts, although the lyrics were a little different but they were still so poetic that albums made great hits. Their above mentioned albums gave a new dimension to classical music, there are so many subjects explored and this band is certainly covering them all.
