Garnering international acclaim with 5 GRAMMY nominations, a sold-out house at New York’s heralded Birdland Jazz Club, and guest appearances with Germany’s renowned WDR Big Band, Chuck sought an opportunity to tour and connect with audiences more intimately. The Covid “break” resulted in a flurry of new works designed to feature the luminescent vocalist Kate McGarry, a 3-time GRAMMY nominee. Debuting in 2023 with a short Florida tour followed by an exhilarating extended tour of the upper mid-west, the band’s first album, “Magic Light” on Origin Records, dropped in April 2024. Like the Surge, ReSurgence's music is grounded in the jazz tradition but embraces influences from American folk, blues, roots, Latin, and many other genres. It’s proven accessible to audiences of all types, including many who have professed they “didn’t think I liked jazz – but I love this!” In addition to writing for the Jazz Surge & WDR, Chuck has composed/arranged for the Netherlands Metropole Orch., Aarhus Jazz Orch., Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orch., and Tonight Show Orch. And many more. He enjoys the title of Distinguished Professor Emeritus at The University of South Florida, serves as the founding President of the International Society of Jazz Arrangers & Composers, and has served as Pres. of IAJE, panelist for the NEA, NARAS, and Pulitzer Prizes, among others.
