Hailing from Nyack, NY, CHUCK LOEB grew up just outside of the musical mecca of Manhattan, and his upbringing helped him craft a musical career that spans four decades. In addition to recording an impressive solo discography, Loeb also boasts memberships in several bands, production credits for other high-profile artists, commercial jingles, television programs, and motion pictures. Even if you don’t know his name, you’ve probably had at least a passing acquaintance with his work.

At age 11, Loeb decided to make music his career. In his early teens, he was exposed to jazz, and made the decision to formally study music. He studied in New York, Philadelphia, and eventually wound up at Berklee College of Music in Boston. Two years at the school strengthened his musicianship and technical skills as a guitarist, arranger, and composer, and he left to move back to New York City.

Loeb worked as a sideman for Chico Hamilton, Ray Barreto, Hubert Laws, and various other artists. In 1979, Stan Getz invited Loeb to join his band. He toured the world composing for and playing with the band, and eventually met his wife, Carmen Cuesta, a vocalist and songwriter from Madrid, Spain. Loeb went on to produce and collaborate with her.

In 1985, Loeb joined Steps Ahead with Michael Brecker, Michael Mainieri, Peter Erskine, and Victor Bailey.

1988 brought him to the conclusion that it was time to launch his solo career. His first record, My Shining Hour, was released on Japanese label Jazz City. He has since gone on to record and release 8 more solo records for various labels. He also recorded with Metro, a four-piece contemporary jazz combo that included Mitch Forman, Wolfgang Haffner, and Anthony Jackson, Victor Bailey, and Mel Brown.
