Leon "Chu" Berry Biography (Wikipedia)

Leon Brown "Chu" Berry (September 13, 1908 – October 30, 1941) was an American jazz tenor saxophonist during the 1930s.

According to music critic Gary Giddins, musicians called him "Chu" because he chewed on the mouthpiece of his saxophone or because he had a Fu Manchu mustache.
