Chuck Walker

Inspired by a series of jazz workshops with San Diego tenor sax legend Daniel Jackson (Ray Charles, Jimmy Smith, Art Farmer) in 1995, guitarist Chuck Walker has been performing and composing music for over a decade on California's west coast. Since “cutting his teeth” in the San Francisco jazz scene in the late 90's with the likes of alto saxophonist John Handy (Charles Mingus) and guitarist Mimi Fox, Walker has performed extensively in Los Angeles with Team Scrub, End of the World Ensemble, and Skyline Electric, and in San Diego with the Chuck Walker Trio, Jivechops Ensemble, and Random House Band.

”Sticking to the classic elements of acid jazz, the Chuck Walker Trio relies on its jazz improvisation to bring out the funky break beats that are signature of the subgenre. 'Our sound reaches out and connects with in-the-pocket drum grooves, thick bass thumps and lush guitar lines,' says Chuck Walker. 'The ability of the drums, bass and guitar to combine and create an improvisational platform for the soloist to play over is what the Chuck Walker Trio creatively explores every time we step on stage.'” --Ashley Lee, 944 Magazine - Music Issue (Apr 01, 2011)
