Charles Fowlkes

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Charles Baker Fowlkes (February 16, 1916 – February 9, 1980) was an American baritone saxophonist who was a member of the Count Basie Orchestra for over twenty-five years.[1]

Early life

Fowlkes was born in New York City on February 16, 1916.[2] He studied alto and tenor saxophone, clarinet, and violin before settling on the baritone saxophone (he occasionally played flute).[1]

Later life and career

Fowlkes spent most of his early career in New York.[1] He played with Tiny Bradshaw (1938–1944), Lionel Hampton (1944–1948), and Arnett Cobb (1948–1951).[2]

Fowlkes joined Basie's orchestra in 1953 and remained with it until his death; the main interruptions during his time with Basie were absences due to managing the career of his wife, vocalist Wini Brown.[1] He died in Dallas on February 9, 1980.[2]
