Following an 8-year hiatus, Chuck has once again taken over the reins of the USF Jazz Ensemble for the 2013/14 academic year. In 2005, after serving in this role for 23 years, Chuck had stepped down to focus on the development of the USF Center for Jazz Composition as well as his own composition projects. With Prof. Tom Brantley similarly (and reluctantly!) deciding this past year he needed to focus his attention on his incredible trombone studio, Chuck has resumed stewardship of this talented and dynamic group! Keep your eyes open for upcoming concerts and guests.
