Have you recorded the songs your group plays on the live Two Boots youtube videos? Those are some of the freshest and most refreshing songs I've heard in a long time. If so, please let me know the name of the album. I would also like to get my hands on these charts if possible.

Hi Chuck, My name is Johannes. You likely won't remember me. I did record you back in 2001 for my former band Hopscotch. I am currently looking for a Flugelhorn player to record a solo for my next release. It's a very jazzy track and odd metered. Please let me know if this interests you. I live in LA, but it would be fine if you recorded it at your studio. You can also call me at 310-944-1994. Looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks, Johannes

Hi, I would like to know a little more about the "Playing the Changes" class that you will be offering at the Berkeley Jazz School this summer. I am in Rob Ewing's Beginning Jazz Ensemble (for the third time). I play alto sax, and more recently tenor. I really want to learn to play engaging solos.
My number-one question is whether we will be playing a lot in your class, or if it is more theoretical.
If there is anything else you can tell me about how the class will be structured, I would appreciate it. Thanks. -- Terry

Hi Chuck. It's been a very long, long time and not sure if you remember me. I pulled out the clarinet after over 25 years to play in the orchestra at our kids production of Peter Pan. The fingers don't move quite as fast as they used to but still a great time (hard not to have fun playing music for a bunch of elementary school kids). April Oliver was also at the show last night (we've keep in touch and she's also godmother to our son and daughter). Anyway, our son will be starting 5th grade next year and is interested in either clarinet or trumpet, which led me to tell him about an "amazing" trumpet player that I knew back in high school. I googled you and came across your site. Glad to see that your pursuing your dream and all sounds like it's going great for you! Anyway, just wanted to say hi after all these years. Vicky.

I had contacted you last summer about lessons for my son Vincent, but at the time you were in the East Bay, so we went with someone closer. It looks like you are in SF now, so I thought I'd reach out again. Are you available/interested in teaching a 14 year-old trumpet player this summer? He will be attending SOTA in the fall, but his regular teachers will be away July and August and we'd like him to stay sharp before school starts on August 17. He will be at Cazadero Music Camp 7/6 - 7/18, so he would probably need 4-5 lessons duriong the last two weeks in July/first two weeks in August, and maybe one in early July. He has studied with Ara Anderson, Mario Silva, Brad Hogarth, and most recently with Henry Hung. Let me know your thoughts, and thank you.

Hi Chuck, this is Joe Cohen's wife. I'm sorry I never reached out to you. I wanted to thank you for playing in January. I got some really nice feedback. Would you be interested in another date in the future? I'm already booked throuh March, but I have some space in April. Thanks!
January 27th, 2013Warren Ottey
Hi Chuck, You don't know me, but I was at both Coatesville, PA, high school and Eastman School of Music with As MacKinnon. I have been an opera singer, and now I am directing choirs in Syracuse, NY. Al was truly a fine trumpet player and a nice guy whom I greatly admired. I am also a friend of Eastman trumpeter, John Thyhsen, who has been asking me if I knew where Al had gone. Can you fill me in? I seem to remember that he played in New Zealand, and I had heard somewhere that he passed away, which if true, saddens me. Any info you can give us would be greatly appreciated. I hope I get to hear you play at some point! Thanks! -Warren Ottey

April 24th, 2011Tom Salvatore
I am Tom Salvatore and I'm in a trumpet rut. I'm 30 years old, have played trumpet most of my life, and continue to practice an hour a day and play with a few groups for fun. I've been in an unispired rut with my practicing recently and could use some motivation. It;s been years since I've had a lesson and am hoping that I could take a lesson with you. If you are at all available I'd greatly appreciate the oppurtunity to sit down and talk music with you.
March 9th, 2011Chris Brown
Way back when I took lessons from you when I was at DVC. Hope you're doing well and I heard you're playing at birdland this week in berkeley. are you living back out in the west coast? it would be great to meet up and take a master class/private lesson or so with you if you're still teaching? I have been playing and teaching a lot and making a living with music, and am always strving to improve. You really helped me out with some stuff when i was younger, much appreciated!
All the best,

How's it going? so I'm trying to bring my trio with russ meissner and dave ambrosio out to the bay area for a CD release tour in June and was wondering if you could recommend any places there to play at. I'll also be back there for 2 months (june-July)...it'd be great to play. Thanks, and I'll talk to you soon,
December 18th, 2010Eric Wells
I got your name from my son's drum teacher, mark bernfield. he says you recently moved to the bay area. I have a 14 year daughter who plays trumpet and needs a new jazz teacher. she is a very solid player; in fact she was quite advanced until she got braces on her teeth. Let me know if you might be interested in a new student.
December 9th, 2010Gerry Sanders
Hi Chuck - looking forward to that scale practice PDF. Might get down to Berkeley on the 21st to hear you, too. Will you be with the Mactet or another group?
