Serge Chaloff

bs, 1923-1957 US, Boston
Musician of Jazz

Serge Chaloff (November 24, 1923 – July 16, 1957) was an American jazz baritone saxophonist.The son of Boston piano teachers Margaret and Julius Chaloff, he was among the few major jazz performers on his instrument. Until Chaloff the only prominent baritone player in jazz was Harry Carney of the Duke Ellington Orchestra. Originally influenced by Carney and Jack Washington of the Count Basie Orchestra, he was later greatly inspired by the bebop playing of Charlie Parker. Chaloff became the first major bebop baritonist and opened the way for others to follow.
