“Chuck Anderson Trio: Philadelphia, PA, July 13, 2013 By VICTOR L. SCHERMER, Published: July 25, 2013 Chuck Anderson Trio Jamey's House of Music Philadelphia, PA July 13, 2013 Chuck Anderson is a virtuoso jazz guitarist with an eclectic repertoire that includes standards, originals, a dash of rock, and artisan electric adaptations of classical acoustic guitar music. He started out forty years ago as the house guitarist at the Latin Casino, and then formed his own groups that included the great bassist Al Stauffer and the genius pianist Bernard Peiffer. His career was disrupted by a series of medical problems, during which time he continued teaching and composing. He recovered and resumed his performing career about a decade ago, and since then has focused on developing his own tight trio, featuring bassist Eric Schreiber and drummer Ed Rick.”
“Chuck is a master. Always has been one! Great teacher and player and my good friend. ”
"Chuck Anderson just concentrates on one thing—playing straight ahead Jazz. There is a lot of nimble technique in his playing which shows well both on springy pieces like “Princess Of The Nile” and mellow Blues tracks like “Misty Glow” and “Exit Blues.” On “Enchanted Garden” Anderson shifts into a reflective country-soul mood and on “Diablo’s Dream” he even works over a funk/hip-hop beat with buzzing, coiled toughness. His rhythm partners, Schreiber and Rick, are always in close support and Anderson emerges on this as a talented modern Jazz guitarist as fluid as a Scofield or Abercrombie.."
““I have known Chuck for many years. He’s still one of the finest guitarists on the planet. Glad he is back on the scene”. ”
"Nice moments here, like the opening modal number 'Princess of the Nile' and the relaxed 'In a Misty Glow,' which has Anderson alternately double-timing furiously and laying into the luxurious tempo. The group swings with gusto on 'Flight,' the dynamic title track and the closer, 'Diablo's Dream,' which gives bassist Eric Schreiber and drummer Ed Rick room to stretch. Anderson also showcases his considerable chord-melody skills on two gorgeous, unaccompanied ballads, 'Song for Coreen' and 'Chanson.'"
“Guitarist/composer Chuck Anderson has the ability to turn notes into poetry.””
““Chuck Anderson is certainly one of America’s finest and most influential guitarists…” ”

““Chuck Anderson is a force to be reckoned with. He is an outstanding teacher, a prolific composer and a great guitarist.” ”
