Chuck Niles — the voice of Jazz in Los Angeles passed away at the age of 76. He spent over 50 years on-air and was beloved by all, earning him countless affectionate nicknames– Bob Florence called him “Bebop Charlie”; the Latin Jazz world knew him as “Carlitos Neelace”; and Horace Silver dubbed him the “Hippest Cat in Hollywood.”
We are proud to honor Chuck Niles and his memory via a music award that represents his love for JAZZ Music and the importance of music education via Musicians Workshop, Temecula California, The Home of the Chuck Niles Jazz Collection.
