About The Tim Chokan Quartet

I was born and raised in Sacramento, CA. When I was thirteen years old, most public schools still had a music department that provided musical instruments for their students. I wanted to play the drums or the trombone. The teacher informed me that they had only one instrument left available for that semester. The Trumpet. So the Trumpet actually found me. I started playing the Trumpet in the seventh grade, and have loved everything about it ever since. I have performed in the high school marching band and the high school stage band. I continued to perform in college stage bands, and in 1984 I moved to Los Angeles. I continued to practice and took lessons for a few years, did some acting, and began my career in the entertainment industry. I started going to open mike nights, and eventually formed my own quartet, "The Rear View Mirror Quartet", which performed jazz standards in and around Los Angeles for about three years. I always wanted to make my own music so I got access to a computer and learned music software to record my music. In 2007, I released my first CD. I got a weeknight gig at BB Kings at Universal Citywalk Hollywood, CA that year, where I was introduced to the music coordinator for Universal Citywalk Artist Group, and called me in to audition for them. I played one song and was hired on the spot. They didn't have any trumpet players and thought I would be a great addition to their group of artists. The cool part was, they wanted me to perform all of my original music. I have since created a total of six CDs, and performed 300+ shows at Universal Citywalk over the last nine years, playing in front of hundreds of thousands of people from around the world, where I would sell my CDS and promote my website and online music store to a global audience. I am proud to be a part of Citywalk and will be for many years to come. I will continue to make music for many years to come. I have temporarily moved back to Sacramento to help out my aging parents.

Hello to all of my Smooth Jazz fans. I hope you all are well and staying safe. I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for listening and sharing my music. It makes my day knowing that with all the music available today that people are enjoying what I do. It's an honor to be able to play the Trumpet and Flugelhorn, my two instruments of choice. Today, I am number one in the Smooth Jazz charts on (expired link) with my song "The PH Factor. This is a very special song for me because the "PH" stands for my very best friend ever, Perry Heinitz. This was the last song Perry and I wrote together. Perry lost his battle with cancer in June of 2016. Perry and I met and were brought together because of music, especially due to the Trumpet. Perry was my next-door neighbor who became my best friend and my brother. He became part of my family. Perry's love of art and music and the creative process was so wonderful. He was a joy to be with. Again thank you for your support and have a wonderful day. May my music bring you peace, love, and joy.

Sincerely,
Tim Chokan
