About Chuck Loeb

Chuck Loeb was a versatile composer, arranger and producer with a passion for jazz guitar. He was exposed to jazz through fusion music of the early 70s and his influences included Wes Montgomery, George Benson, John McLaughlin and Pat Martino. He played with jazz luminaries like Chico Hamilton, Ray Barreto, Hubert Laws, and many others during his career and became the musical director and composer for the Stan Getz band in 1979. A renowned soloist, his 1996 solo release "The Music Inside" held the number one position on the contemporary jazz charts for six weeks. He was a member of the Bob James led group Fourplay from 2010 until he passed away from cancer in 2017.
