Watch & Listen
Al Chez, is a trumpet player extraordinaire. Getting his start in his father’s drum corps in New Jersey at age 9, his career has spanned more than 20 years with stints in a number of rock, funk and blues bands.
As a teenager in 1979, Chez and some fellow New Jersey musicians, including Jon Bon Jovi, started The Atlantic City Expressway, which played locally for five years before disbanding. A few years later, Chez met Paul Shaffer and was invited to tour with The World’s Most Dangerous Band.
A veteran of the clubs around New York City and New Jersey, Chez branched out to California to join the soul-funk band Tower of Power in 1988 and then played trumpet for the band of blues master Robert Cray for a short time in the mid-1990s.
He formed Al Chez and the Brothers of Funk Big Band with two Rochester-area music teachers, Jimmy Steele and Jarred Streiff.
