In many ways, each of us faces the world with multiple identities. On any given day, we are many things to many people, moving frequently from one persona to another. And in the end, the energy that emerges amid the transitions is what makes our lives sometimes challenging, but always interesting.
Guitarist Chuck Loeb understands this dynamic as well as or better than most jazz musicians. In the span of his prolific career that stretches across more than four decades, he has recorded and performed in countless corners of the world, forever balancing the bedrock elements of traditional jazz with the innovations of contemporary jazz. His ambitious schedule frequently takes him from his home in the U.S. to countless points on the map throughout Europe, Asia and beyond - places where the perceptions of his music in particular and jazz in general can vary greatly. Clearly, Loeb is an artist and musician who lives in more than one world, and moves with confidence among and between all of them.
