Charley Harrison

With the release of his first solo CD, KEEPING MY COMPOSURE, on C3 Records, composer, arranger and conductor Charley Harrison, is poised to join the ranks of the composer/ arranger/conductors that have helped chart the course of jazz.

A Chicago native, Harrison was appointed Director of the UCLA Jazz Orchestra in 2004, while still serving, since 1991, as Associate Director and guitarist for the eighteen-piece Chicago Jazz Orchestra. CJO is currently backing his CD of original material and jazz standards, with guest performances by vocalists Freddy Cole, Kurt Elling, Sara Gazarek and CJO’s Frieda Lee, guitarist Bobby Broom and pianist Cedar Walton, among others.
