One reviewer labeled Chuck Pyle "the Zen Cowboy" for his delightful but seemingly at-odds mix of upbeat New Age humor and straight-from-the-saddle poetry. His music mixes western themes, folk, rock, cowboy poetry and new age humor into his own unique "Southwestern Acoustic" sound. An accomplished songwriter with five albums to his credit, Chuck's songs have been recorded by a number of popular artists, including Jerry Jeff Walker, John Denver and Tish Hinojosa. Chuck Pyle is also a well-known performer. He has developed his own powerful and unique finger picking style which he calls "Rocky Mountain Slam Picking," which simultaneously emulates rhythm guitar strums and lead guitar lines making him sound like an entire band.

Jennifer Lee
I love technology when all of the cables work correctly and I love jazz! The other day I got a call from a San Francisco vocalist named Jennifer Lee. She wondered if I would play jazz with her at an upcoming Dizzy’s hit. I said yes and then wondered how well we’d do. How does she sing? Are we all going to be gathered at Dizzy’s and have a rough moment? She directed me to her website and it’s MP3 samples and folks, let me tell you, this gal SINGS! She leans into the jazz classics as well as some Brazilian tunes and it sounds GOOD! I’m thrilled to be doing this. We called Bob Magnusson and he’ll join in on his low end magic. I hope you all make it out to hear this spirited gal from SF.

Annual Free Jazz Christmas Concert
We have a yearly tradition of playing a noon free concert on the street corner of Del Mar. I'd say a good three fourths of our jazz gang grew up in there and our first performances were actually on this same section of real estate. We'd put out the guitar case, tune it up, and let the sounds begin. Kevyn Lettau was seventeen years old then (she doesn't look much older now, weird). What you could or could not do in alignment with the law was less defined. Why not let a jazz group take over a sidewalk and play a concert? Now, in this last breath of two thousand one we've procured the proper city permits and we're planning on taking it over again. This year there will be more reharmonized Christmas music than ever. For those who didn't make it through music school, reharmonized means we've taken the typical batch of Christmas music and put new chords and twists to the melodies and, we think, improved it a great deal. With this camouflage, we as improvisers then feel inspired to blow a solo over, say, "Jingle Bells", one of the planets least challenged harmonic adventures.  So, here you have these jazzbo's playing music on the street corner. But you'll also absorb, if you can pull away from home or bring with you all of your holiday commitments, little kids, (our kids), dancing and singing their own versions of the aforementioned "Jingle Bells". And then there is Virginia Igonda's unending beautiful spirit of Christmas (she's the gal that owns the Ocean Song store and has been a supporter of our music since the beginning), and the "only in California" occurrence of seeing a dripping surfer in a wetsuit walking by barefoot on the day before Christmas. Hallelujah, let the music begin!
