    Maybe I missed it, but I didn't see another thread on this. Guitar great Chuck Loeb died on Monday. I've been a fan of his for along time, his albums always had great bassist on them and he was always involved in projects that had badass bassist. [Fourplay/Steps Ahead]
    He was way too young!
    Fly on Chuck...................................

    So sad...he was WAY too young.

    I took a guitar lesson with Chuck in 1976 when he was fresh out of college and I was a snot-nosed 15-year-old just getting into jazz. Even back then he was a pretty freakin amazing musician.

    RIP, Chuck.

    Thanks for reminding me Jim! I broke it out today, it's been so long since I listened to it I forgot it was a live album. Even scarier for me was that the album came out in 1992, twenty five years ago and it seems like yesterday.;)
    Victor just kills on it too!

    Listening to this album...now. Loeb is screaming on this thing.
    Victor Bailey & Dennis Chambers are great together, too.

    Great guitarist. He was in Fourplay for a while, and really added a lot to an already great band.
