Chubby Jackson



Chubby was raised in Long Island and played clarinet until the age of 16, when he found the bass. He moved to New York and played with several bands until meeting up with Woody Herman, who he played with during different times in the 40s and 50s. In the 50s he wrote music for children's television and played with Louis Armstrong. Later he played with Harold Baker and Joe Coleman's Big Four.
