So thrilled to have the legendary Chuck Israels coming to Christo's with his sextet! Israels is a composer/arranger/bassist who has worked with Billie Holiday, Benny Goodman, Coleman Hawkins, Stan Getz, Herbie Hancock, J.J. Johnson, John Coltrane, and many others. He is best known for his work with the Bill Evans Trio from 1961 through 1966 and for his pioneering accomplishments in Jazz Repertory as Director of the National Jazz Ensemble from 1973 to 1981. Among Chuck's many recordings as a bassist, some outstanding ones include: Coltrane Time, with John Coltrane; My Point of View, with Herbie Hancock; Getz au Go-Go, with Stan Getz; and many recordings with the Bill Evans Trio, including The Town Hall Concert; The Second Trio; Trio '65; Live at the Trident; Time Remembered; and Live at Shelley's Manne Hole. Chuck is a top flight composer, arranger, and bassist, and we are incredibly honored to have him play at our lounge. Not to mention his incredible band featuring Cyrus Nabipoor on trumpet, David Evans on tenor sax, Chris Shuttleworth on trombone, Joe Bagg on piano and George Colligan on drums. This show is not to be missed!
