Chuck Zeuren

Chuck Zeuren attended and graduated from Berklee College of Music, Boston, MA. where he met and played with such jazz luminaries as John Scofield, Joe Lovano, Gary Burton etc. Soon after graduation, Chuck moved to New York City and while continuing his playing and gigging relationships with Scofield and Lovano, he got involved in the New York Jazz Loft Scene. Here he met and played with Mike Brecker, Randy Brecker, Dave Liebman, Bob Mintzer, Jerry Bergonzi, Tom Harrell, Pepper Adams, Cecil Payne and many others. Chuck joined the band led by Paul Jeffreys, Theolonious Monk's protege and tenor player. This lead to an orientation throughout many of New York City's most famous jazz clubs. He then, in the late 70's, joined the Lionel Hampton Orchestra for what became a 2 year stint. Coming off the road with Hampton, he worked with the late, great Chet Baker's quartet, again throughout some of New York's most prestigious jazz clubs.

Zeuren attended The City University of New York (Graduate program in Jazz Composition) during the late 80's at which time he met and performed with more of the Jazz world's most prodigious members....Jimmy Heath, Freddie Hubbard, Ron Carter etc..
For the past 15 years he has performed on numerous jingles, Broadway shows, CD's and albums as a sideman and in the early 90's recorded his first CD as a leader.

Entitled "Zeuren", the CD was released in 1996 on the Monad Jazz label and met with instant acclaim. It remained on the national jazz charts for many weeks and eventually reached the top 25, nationwide. "Zeuren" was featured during the month of November 1996, on Puerto Rico's largest jazz radio station, that of the University of El San Juan, as part of the celebration of Puerto Rico's "National Month of Percussion". In addition, "Zeuren" was chosen as "Star CD of the Month" for the July 97 issue of "Le Jazz" (Paris, France) and more recently, Chuck's professional experiences have been featured in an article in the Feb./March 1998 issue of "Jazz Player Magazine". Whatever the project, he has continuously received praise from both fellow musicians and critics alike.
Along with touring throughout Europe and the US and recording with his own band, Zeuren continues to work as a sideman with some of the world's most renown jazz musicians....He recently performed on world renown jazz drummer/vocalist Grady Tate's latest CD and performed on and wrote string arrangements for a CD due out soon which features the late great jazz vocalist, Etta Jones. In addition, a Zeuren led quintet session entitled "Why Not??" has been recently released on the RED RECORDS label to numerous rave reviews.....check them out!
