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. Saxophonist Chuck Manning is not new to recording-he has made dozens of appearances and collaborations with other musicians such as the Los Angeles Quartet, and his long-time collaboration with Swiss multi-instrumentalist Isla Eckinger. Chuck Manning’s new CD “Note’s from the Real” “…is a great one” writes the LAWeekly. “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”....
