Chuck Yates and James Ryan

James Ryan and Chuck Yates James Ryan and Chuck Yates

It's Chuck's 79th birthday this month.

And this week is the official renaming launch of The Glebe Justice Centre (formerly Glebe Cafe Church). 

Chuck was born in Bendigo, bounced around between Sydney and Melbourne during the 60s and 70s, studied in New York in the 80s, and washed up at the Bald Faced Stag in Leichhardt in 1994.  He's be taught by legends, and in turn he has taught legends ("I taught myself how to teach and I also taught myself by teaching").  These days his public performances are rare, and always in duet with James Ryan.

i discoverd this great interview with him on Australian Jazz :
