Each One Teach One!

I would appreciate if you would take the time to read this. It is very important to us to believe & work to see it through. First and foremost, I would like to thank all of the people that responded to the post in reference to my dad. It was a wonderful thing to hear from you. Growing up 1st hand in that time of history was a great music education mentally and spiritually to see how these great musicians work collectively to express something that they truly believed in.

I would like to say truly that at a period of time society thought the world of Jazz was dead & no more. That did not happen. So I was convinced & know now it will never die. On the contrary, it is becoming even stronger. All of us Jazz lovers collectively (I know) will see it through to be stronger than ever.

From the educational living experience I encountered, I have a very direct vision of how those giants became, just that, Giants! So at this time, I am posting for my availability for the 2019 educational tour schedule to all of you Jazz educators around the world. If you are interested, please contact me at www.TheRouseLegacy.com to inquire for bookings.

Let a life-long time of experience and exposure give you the insight on these giants that you’ve never heard before.


Yours Truly,

Charles “Chico” Rouse Jr.

  1. I’m an adviser to the Alice and John Coltrane Home in Dix Hills long Island, where John Coltrane wrote A love Supreme, and where Alice Coltrane had her own recording studio and recorded four of her own albums. I just want to say thank you for keeping your father’s legacy alive! Wouldn’t be a great Monk without a Rouse!

  2. Dear Mr. Rouse,
    My name is Craig Holiday Haynes and although I don’t recall that you and I have ever met, your father (I’m assuming) was one of my favorite “cats”, as I was growing up. I’m not sure if it’s becauae he always had a warm persona whenever I was in his company (often with Nica simultaneously) or also because I enjoyed his playing (of course it’s both) but I’m also very I’m happy to see that you are keeping his spirit and legacy alive! If I can ever be of some assistance, don’t hesitate to reach out. I’m here in the city (of NY) until the 11th (then in Japan) and with the exception of the first week of December, I’m gone again (to Europe) until the middle of January.

    1. Hi Mr. Haynes I am sorry it has taken this long for me to get back to you . I have been working very hard to keep my Dad Legacy alive.Jazz music was his life so I would love to talk to you very soon my#7327686288 Thank you so much for the love!!!💕👍🏼

  3. Thank you so much for sharing your dad with us more, and all you have done for us who enjoy the music of Jazz, although he did it for himself, as we all want to enjoy certain sounds which we apply in our writing and performing, we see how that benefits others, and he truly benefited all of us too! I am very happy that you have shown us all he had accomplished! You sure are following in his steps!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂 Thank you for all you do too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂 Ruth Ellen Lenher
