Anyone who has been involved with the Los Angeles jazz scene over the last quarter century doesn‘t need to ask, but if you haven’t, you‘ve been missing out and you’re in for a long overdue treat with this release of his first solo CD.

Awards

Runner-up prize in the 1996 Cognac Hennessey Jazz Search Los Angeles Jazz Quartet and The James Carney Group
”Essential listening for any local jazz listener. Manning is a fine inventive tenor player. With Joe Henderson as his baseline, he plays a gorgeous ballad, can blow some brilliant and slightly understated post-bop frenzy, and can lay out the bop lines fresh. His band is a great one, with Jim Szilagyi often matching him idea for idea. Drummer Tim Pleasant’s understated tapping and tippling and cymbal washes defy the written word. And this quartet’s unreleased album, Manning debut as a leader, is a great one.” - Brick Wahl, LAWeekly, December 22, 2006.

“Chuck has a bold sound and keen rhythmic sense”. -Leonard Feather, Los Angeles Times.

“No matter what the context, tenor Manning’s mix of smarts and heart will get to you “ he always seems to work out just the right solo for the moment” “ LAWeekly.

“…rare sense of integrity and conviction”. -L.A. Jazz Scene.
