The Chuck Anderson Trio
Born in Chicago, Illinois, Chuck Anderson is currently based out of Philadelphia, PA.
Chuck began his career as staff guitarist for the Latin Casino in
Cherry Hill, New Jersey at the age of 21. Here he performed with legends
such as Peggy Lee, Billy Eckstine, Bobby Darin, Nancy Wilson, Michel Le
Grande and Sammy Davis Jr among many others.
Having founded the Chuck Anderson Trio with bassist Al Stauffer and
drummer Ray Deeley, he recorded his first jazz LP "Mirror Within a
Mirror" in 1974.
After spending many years as a composer and educator, Chuck returned
to his jazz concert career with performances and a new CD on the
Dreambox Media label called "Freefall". This is Chuck's third jazz CD
and features Eric Schreiber on bass and Ed Rick on drums. The project
consists of twelve original works.
Chuck's unique jazz compositions differentiate him from all other concert jazz guitarists.
A prolific author, Chuck has written and published fifteen books on the guitar and creativity in music.
He currently writes for Just Jazz Guitar, All About Jazz, Jazz Inside and Jazz Inside New York.
Chuck maintains a busy schedule performing, teaching and lecturing in the United States and abroad.
Eric Schreiber is a talented and exciting bass player who fulfills a
critical role in providing energy, feel and the foundation of the trio's
guitar dominant format. Eric's improvisational creativity works well in
his dual role of support and solo.
Ed Rick is an experienced and versatile drummer who has played in a wide
range of professional situations. His solid timekeeping and ever
evolving style brings a fresh, dynamic sound to the group. Besides his
playing, Ed devotes a good deal of time to his teaching practice.
