ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Charlie Wood's Biography

"Rare and pure of heart" best describes the music of this Texas-based smooth jazz guitarist. Wood is not by any means a newcomer to the music scene. Born in San Antonio but raised in Bulverde, Texas, he has played with a few of country's finest musicians like Johnny Gimble and also played in the house band at Gilley's for three and a half years.

Charlie first started playing banjo taught to him by his father at the age of 7. However, at the age of 9 Charlie developed an interest in guitar and when he was eleven he began to take lessons from a jazz guitarist, Dow Daggett. At 14 he began playing professionally in various types of music from Rock N Roll, R&B to Country. In high school, Charlie earned a music scholarship for college but felt led elsewhere pursuing music on his own. Getting his feet wet in all genres of music he found that his true love is Jazz. When contemporary jazz hit the music scene Charlie knew he had found his niche.

Since releasing his first contemporary jazz CD, In The Thick of the Woods (which was considered for a Grammy nomination in 1996) Charlie has opened for such acts as Chuck Loeb, Fattburger, George Howard, Gerald Albright, Walter Beasley, Everett Harp and Brian Culbertson and most recently this 2007 year for Boney James and Spyro Gyra.

Charlie is an accomplished guitarist and his persistence and determination have enabled him to receive endorsements from Epiphone Guitars, Minarik Guitars, J. D'Daddario and Dunlop Picks.

His last project, Rhythms of the Eclipse, has guest artist, Kim Stone, bassist for The Rippingtons. Critics have stated this CD is phenomenal and captures Charlie's true sound, "sound that fuses smooth jazz, straight-up jazz, Latin, funk and ballads". He plays his music with "soul, class and imagination" (Jim Beal, Night Lights, Express-News), which reveals his inner creativity. As Charlie believes in giving back to the community, he teaches children through his music store, Third Stream Music. In addition, one of the tunes on the new CD, Better Days, is dedicated to caregivers all over the world, survivors of 9-11 and survivors of domestic violence. Currently, Charlie is working on his newest CD called "Watercolors" which once again features Kim Stone and is due for release in 2007.

Charlie is a dedicated and talented man who believes God has blessed him and allowed him to be able to do his music by performing and teaching. He is currently a member of BMI, NARAS, and IAJE (International Association of Jazz Educators).

When you hear Charlie's music for the first time, it is evident it comes from his heart and for certain, whether you hear Charlie live or on CD, he will captivate yours.

Scott O'Brien


"Rhythms of the Eclipse, his latest project, beautifully showcases Charlie Wood's lyrical style and high caliber versatility. He uses three different guitars ... Electric, flamenco, and classical, which provide an exceptionally diverse and engaging set of performances. They all have very important elements in common, though , Charlie Wood's jazz heart, and his passion for performing."

More Freedom of Expression -- CD #2!
Charlie's second CD is wonderfully mixed & mastered, and really does feature Charlie at his cool, jazzy best. I enjoy listening to this one when I need inspiration or a peaceful inner feeling. "Harlem Groove" reminds me of B.B. King. The powerful "Elephant Tears" brings to mind very vivid imagery -- I can see the music video for this one already! "Give Me All You Got" reminds me of George Benson. Kim Stone's awesome presence helps fuse (pun intended!) the songs together, and Charlie's mastery of his different tones colors the songs just right. This is one artist you won't want to pass up. Listen to the clips from the CD, I'm sure you'll agree!

This CD has beauty, passion, peace and entertains
Charlie's music is truly from his heart...it has beauty, passion, is peaceful and entertaining. It certainly is a stress releaser. What is even better is seeing Charlie perform in person. The man is so talented and yet so humble. His time has come and his reward forthcoming. I could watch those fingers play all day long.
