#1: Chuck Loeb - wow!

Posted on 2006-06-03 12:46:02 by Hans van Leeuwen

Today I heard a player called Chuck Loeb for the first time. This guy can
play! Impeccable timing, wonderful lines, and impressive powerplay. Pat
Martino calls him one of the best. I never saw his name come by in this
group, maybe because he is classified (at least in my digital tv/radio
guide) under 'Contemporary-& Smooth Jazz'? This guy deserves more attention
here.

Hans,

Chuck Loeb is one of my fave "smooth jazz" guitarists. If you like
Chuck, you may like Jeff Golub of Avenue Blue, too.

Check out his 'My shining Hour' album. Great playing and great tunes.
The downsides to that album is that his tone is kind of thin and even
worse, his wife sings on couple of tunes.
Otherwise, it's a really nice CD with Dave Weckl, Patitucci, Akagi etc.

Chuck is not a "smooth jazz" guitarist. He's a guitarist. He plays many
styles. Let's quit with the labels already.

No Jack, Chuck Loeb does record and promote &quot;smooth jazz&quot;. He may do other
things also but that does not mean he can not be described as a &quot;smooth jazz
guitarist&quot;, among other things. I don't think the comments about that were
meant to be inflammatory. However, your comment implies there's something
bad about being a &quot;smooth jazz guitarist&quot;. If you did not mean to imply
that, I suggest you consider your phrasing.

Chuck Loeb is a very accomplished jazz guitarist who has played with
among others Stan Getz. He is a fantastic player. He has chosen to
play pretty lame smooth jazz for quite a while now. I have a live
album of him where he does a nice arrangement of My Shining Hour and
blows like crazy.

Chuck's a great player. I remember when he played with Getz. He said he got
the gig based in part on his abilities as a composer. His composition
credits are quite extensive too. He's written a lot for television.

As a guitarist he's long been associated with the smooth jazz thing. Oh
well. He's another of the gifted instrumentalists that we'd like to hear
some straight ahead music from.

I even played with him once. He had this three voice expanding scale and he
played the last few descending notes with his nose. It was funny as all
hell. 8-) .....joe

Do you recall what kind of guitar he was playing? I've seen a number

Do you have a side you'd recommend as representative of his better work?

I have two, Balance and All There Is, and though a clearly talented
player (and exceptionally produced), little reaches through the speaker
and grabs me. It's tough to set the &quot;smooth jazz&quot; label aside when the
tone and approach of the CD's seems so consistent relative to the
production approach. Most tempos are within a certain range. Most
solos and compositions are set on a 2 or 4 bar repeato groove.

Highly processed, synths reminiscent of &quot;urban contemporary&quot; of the
80's, more pop than jazz in the rhythm section, grooves to forever.
Bear in mind that I like the sound of all this--it's not something I
flinch and stiffen to. If given two paradigms for the production of an
album of my own: dry guitar trio versus highly processed contemporary
urban pop instrumentation, I'd quite likely take the later.

Every guitarist currently working in the &quot;smooth jazz&quot; industry sounds
like a conspicously capable musician. Loeb may have many styles of
which he is capable. But I've only witnessed the one approach he uses
in the production of his records. Yes, there's the occasional nylon
striing intro and such...

Besides I don't really want to set these labels aside anyway--they are
instructive in helping me work through my own thinking and my own
biases. Do I want Chuck to play standards and bop heads in a
trio/quartet processed semi-dry? Would that make me want to listen to
him? Respect him? God I hope not, that would suck. I don't want to
hammer musicians into some contrived 1950's model in order to
&quot;understand&quot; them. I'd hate that.

I bought this album of his because he plays the exact same guitar as me (at
least the picture on the album cover is), a Yamaha AEX 1500. Well, much to
my chagrin, he could have been playing an archtop mackerel, there is just
here is no way to distinguish the characteristic sound of any kind of guitar
in there....

Yeah, fantastic player. I bought a CD a few years ago (I think it was called
&quot;Listen&quot;) after hearing it at a listening station at Border's. Chops, cool
lines, unique &quot;voice&quot;, easy to identify.

Hmm .. I've been trying to track down one of those for a very long time

real thing for a luthier-challenging restoration project.

Is he not the guitarist on A New Kind of Blue (available on emusic) - I
really like his playing on that!

I saw him with Getz easily 20 years ago at the old Keystone in SF, and he
was excellent. He was very young. Getz gave him a ton of solo space, and
they played a lot of his (Loeb's) compositions.

Getz loved to play his sidepersons' tunes. He could play over
anything, no matter how modern the chords. He just found melodic stuff
that fit over it by ear.

This is interesting - I was just listening to his &quot;ebop&quot; album for the
first time today (never heard of him before) - my reacton was, well
that is some cheesy (though slickly-produced_) smotth jazz, but that
cat can play! I found myself embarrased to listen to it but enjoying it
nonetheless.
