New charts soon to be available through UNC Jazz Press

For the first time, some of Chuck’s small group works will be made readily available in addition to those recorded by the Jazz Surge.  Charts from two releases by Surge tenor saxophonist & USF Director of Jazz Studies, Jack Wilkins (Ridgelines & Dear Old Stockholm), will be made available exactly as they were recorded.  In addition, Chuck has adapted the haunting ballad, “A Ridge Away” for big band.  Premiered by the Oregon All-State Jazz Ensemble, this chart is readily playable by most high school ensembles – particularly those with a strong tenor soloists.
