''Chazz'' The Charles Licata Ensemble featuring Bob Moses and Marissa Licata

Chazz is Jazz but what is Jazz and what is Chazz. Jazz is the rhythm of life, something that we live but don't or can''t explain. Chazz offers you the answer to your questions for the music is a heritage and projection of Jazz's face. There is no piano in this group, but there are two basses. There is no Charlie Parker but there is Charlie Licata. There isn't a "Duke" or " Monk" or "Fats" or "Ornette" composition but there are songs that tell us all about these people. It is said when good music stops you can hear there is something missing.
