Chuck began his professional music career as lead guitarist for a popular Baltimore-based band, the first self-contained African/American band to be signed by MCA Records (1975) joining the roster of artists like Elton John, Bernie Taupin, Olivia Newton- John, and Lynard Skynard. By the age of 17 his fondness for piano became a reality when he taught himself to play and opened up a new world of composing and arranging.
From his hungry club band days in Baltimore and D.C., Chuck relocated to L.A where he performed guitar studio session work interspersed with several years touring the world with internationally known top-40 groups such as the Bee Gee's (via The Sweet Inspirations) and Shalamar. He did significant studio work with Motown Records artists and worked on projects for producers such as Leon Sylvers, Berry Gordy, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, in addition to working on more than hundreds of projects with various artists, producers, writers, and/or arrangers.
In 1987, he signed with A&M Records and joined the roster with Janet Jackson, Barry White, Sting and released "Just Havin Fun." The group The Fit, (the collaborative name of Chuck and singer Vince Ebo) sold extremely well on both adult contemporary and r&b charts and whose video "Just Havin Fun" held strong in the top 20 countdown on both B.E.T.'s video soul (with Donnie Simpson) as well as VH-1 was the most requested for it's time frame.
While Chuck's musical style has always been known for funk, rhythm-n-blues and rock, his versatility has allowed him to work with artists as varied as jazz greats George Duke and Stanley Clarke and pop music sensations of the 70s and 80s, The Jacksons. His personal style has been shaped by artists like: Earth, Wind & Fire, Ramsey Lewis, Sergio Mendez, James Brown, Burt Bacharach/Hal David, Paul McCartney, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Bob James, George Duke, Earl Klugh, Sly Stone and others. In addition, Chuck has recorded with artists such as Stephanie Mills, Cheryl Lynn (Encore single), David Benoit, Klymaxx, Jeffrey Osborne, The Temptations (Reunion album), saxophone great the late Junior Walker (Blow the House Down album), Dave Koz, Jeff Lorber and more. Chuck's musical focus has evolved into a preference for old school r&b and the smooth fusion guitarists of artists like Eric Gale, Lee Ritenour and David T. Walker.
This project is dedicated to the memory of Charles A. Gentry, Sr. and Richard E. Fortune
and inspired by Jacqueline R. Moore.
