Originally a guitarist, Arlie “Chico” Huff has been playing music professionally – on bass—since he was 15 years old. Though never formally trained, he got serious, on-the-job training during his years living in Massachusetts via playing and/or recording with the likes of Carly Simon and James Taylor. He moved to Philadelphia in 1983, and ended up spending six years on the Atlantic City music scene where worked he backed just about everyone. He then spent three years touring with Irish super group Solas, crisscrossing the country regularly with “side trips” to Ireland and Belgium. In between traveling, he played with smooth jazz guitarist Jeff Golub as well as a short stint with David Crosby (of Crosby, Still & Nash). More recently, he’s become a mainstay on the Philadelphia jazz scene, best known for his ability to work well in a variety of settings, ranging from funk to Latin to straight-ahead jazz.

Jazz Bridge, an award-winning nonprofit dedicated to assisting Greater Philadelphia Metro area jazz and blues musicians and vocalists in times of crisis, sponsors these neighborhood concerts throughout the region to keep the sound of Philadelphia alive.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
