Entitled Elsie Street, it features George Cables on piano and Metcalf's compositions. It was followed in 1991 by a piano-less octet recording, Help Is Coming. Both CDs won the Earshot Jazz Best NW Recording award. Bert Wilson has produced several CDs on his FMO label that feature Metcalf's playing. Returning to the Bay Area in the mid-90s, Metcalf once again found a receptive environment for his talents among the many world-class resident artists constituting the Bay Area jazz scene. In 2010 Metcalf moved to Santa Fe where he performed with pianist Jon Rangel, guitarist Pat Malone, drummer Peter Amahl, and saxophonists Doug Lawrence and Richie Cole. In 2011 he retired from public performance, but continues to teach and compose. More Tributes to Chuck Metcalf.
