Brian Chahley

“This Way” is the newest album from young up-and-coming trumpeter Brian Chahley (20) from Toronto, Canada. After spending two years as a fellow at the prestigious Brubeck Institute ( in California playing alongside some of the world’s finest young talent and studying under some of the biggest names in jazz, Brian brought a mix of other Brubeck Fellows (past and present) to Toronto in January of 2007 to record this album.

Featured on the album alongside Brian are Lucas Pino on tenor sax, Glenn Zaleski on piano, Chris Smith on bass and Colin Stranahan on drums. Colin has just begun a two year fellowship at the Monk Institute in New Orleans, while Lucas and Glenn recently continued their education at the New School in New York City. Chris is still at the Brubeck Institute, while Brian (a graduate of the fellowship program) is continuing to perform with the Brubeck Institute Jazz Quintet while also holding an administrative position at the Institute.
