The Flock was an American, Chicago-based jazz-rock band, that released two records on Columbia records in 1969 (The Flock) and 1970
(Dinosaur Swamps). The Flock did not achieve the commercial success of other Columbia jazz-rock groups of the era such as Chicago and
Blood Sweat & Tears, but were most notable for their inclusion of a prominent violin in their recordings. The violinist, Jerry Goodman, went on to
become a member of Mahavishnu Orchestra and a solo artist.
