SAXOPHONIST Solo, Duo, or with Jazz/Swing Band Big City Swingers
Area: UK and Ireland.
Repertoire: Jazz, swing, contemporary classics.
Trained: Cardiff University, Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
Profile: Chris has worked with some of the top names in the music industry including Rolling Stones Charlie Watts, Ronnie Wood and Mick Taylor as well as George Porter Jr (Meters) and Ska heavy-weights Bad Manners. He has performed at Ronnie Scotts, Pizza Express Jazz Club, Boisdale Club and The100 Club as well as appearing at festivals across the UK and Europe. For an intimate event, Chris on solo saxophone with backings is ideal; Duos or Trios are better for making your party swing; and for a full-on sound of the golden age of jazz we recommend a quartet or quintet – the wonderful Big City Swingers. Consisting of saxophone, piano or guitar, bass, and drums, with trumpet as an possible extra, the Big City Swingers are irresistably good. Their stylish and sleek interpretation of Jazz classics will give your event that touch of class. They are able to mix contemporary repertoire into their set so you will get music from across the decades.
