Primary Instrument: Sax, tenor

The Chuz Alfred Quintet began traveling the U.S. and Canada in June 1954. In March 1955, the president of Savoy Records contacted the group. The quintet recorded a rhythm and blues single at King Studios in Cincinnati; then, in September, went to New York to record another. On September 27, 1955, the group's album, Jazz Young Blood, was recorded at Rudy Van Gelder's Studio in Hackensack, New Jersey with Ola Hanson, trombone; Chuck Lee, piano; jazz great Vinnie Burke, bass; and the legendary Kenny Clarke, drums. In 1956, the quintet left New York's Gale Booking Agency and signed with General Artists Corporation (GAC). This led to an exclusive management contract with Ray Bloch and Associates. Amid increasing change and adversity, the quintet was unable to fulfill a recording date with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in 1958. It disbanded in September when Chuz accepted an invitation from Ralph Marterie to join his big band in Chicago on October 1 of that year. Despite the opportunities during the 1950s to join Woody Herman, Carl Perkins, Buddy Morrow, Perez Prado, Ray Eberly, Claude Thornhill and Al Belletto's Sextet, Chuz left the road in June 1959 to finish his bachelor's degree in Radio-TV at Ohio State University....
