Chuck Anderson
Chuck Anderson's guitar artistry is a cut above the jazz standard. The quality of his execution is so fine that on first hearing, it is literally stunning. His recent CD, Freefall (Dreambox Media, 2010) consists of musical gems--all-original compositions, woven into a tapestry worthy of a master classical guitarist. Yet it is all straight-ahead mainstream jazz played on a Gibson L5 electric guitar in a trio setting.

The question arises as to why he is not better known within the lineage of jazz guitarists that includes Wes Montgomery, Herb Ellis, Jimmy Bruno, and Pat Martino. among others. One reason may be his exceptionally high standards, so that his recording and live appearances have been especially selective over the years.

There are other reasons, too, and AAJ Contributor Victor L. Schermer investigates them and much more in his insightful interview with Anderson, one sure to bring more attention to this outstanding player and educator.
