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.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
