Charles Fambrough Charles Fambrough

In his 35 year career, legendary Philadelphia bassist Fambrough has played with McCoy Tyner, Grover Washington, Jr., Art Blakey, Flora Purim Airto, and many others.

A prolific composer whose works have been recorded by giants such as Stanley Turentine, Roy Hargrove and The Jazz Messengers. Fambrough's love for contemporary African-American, Latin and Brazilian music has been evident since his first recording as a leader entitled: The Proper Angle.

One of Charles Fambrough's stated goals is “Not to mix my concept of music with a monetary attitude... My view of music is toward people like 'Trane and Miles that I aspire to.”

He is a consummate musician who refuses to confine his creativity to the jazz mainstream. The result is a highly personal style which seldom fails to draw raves from audience and critics alike.
