CHUCK LOEB, GUITARIST AND COMPOSER PASSES AWAY AT 61.
Guitarist and composer Chuck Loeb has died.
Personally, I am saddened by Chuck's passing. He was a friend to all of us at the SJN and a man we respected as not only a talented musician, but also as a generous and kind person. While we do not have much detail regarding his passing or cause of death, we wanted to share this sad news with his fans. As we hear more from the family, we will share.
Chuck was the amazing guitarist for the supergroup Fourplay and recently released his solo CD "Unspoken". His current single "Happy Hour" lands at #14 on this week's SMOOTH JAZZ TOP 20, as Chuck continued to share his music through his recent illness.
