About Chuck

Chuck Loeb is a versatile composer, arranger and producer known for his ability to play any style of music, but his main passion has always been jazz guitar. He was first exposed to jazz through fusion music of the early 70s such as the Mahavishnu Orchestra, which first inspired him to formally study jazz guitar. Chuck's first mentor was the jazz guru Dennis Sandole, and he later studied with late great jazz guitarist Jim Hall. Chuck attended Berklee College of Music in Boston where he studied jazz guitar, as well as composing and arranging. Chuck's influences include jazz guitar greats like Wes Montgomery, George Benson, John McLaughlin and Pat Martino.

In his early professional career Chuck Loeb played with jazz luminaries like Chico Hamilton, Ray Barreto, Hubert Laws, and many others. He joined the Stan Getz band in 1979 and later became the musical director for the group and composed much of the material. In 1985, Chuck joined the jazz fusion group Steps Ahead with Michael Brecker, Michael Mainieri, Peter Erskine ,and Victor Baile. Chuck's 1996 solo release "The Music Inside" held the number one position on the contemporary jazz charts for six weeks. He has been a member of the Bob James lead group Fourplay since 2010 along with Harvey Mason and fellow ArtistWorks instructor Nathan East.
