Chris released his third album “House Call”, 11 tracks in organ jazz trio format. Breaking away from his second record “Current Shifts”, the drummer moves from global, exploratory improvisation to American Soul Jazz. Paying homage to organ based music, he shows equal respect to both groove and swing. From the first track, “Three of Three” with its heavy back beat, to the last swinging blues track ”The Vague Reply“, Chris reveals his deep respect for this form of music. He draws inspiration from the blues, swing, 60s rock as well as his fellow musicians. He showcases three original compositions by guitarist Jay Azzolina written exclusively for “House Call”. Saxophonist/Composer “Peyton Pleninger”, contributes a beautiful Boogaloo song, written when he was only 19. Organist Brian Charette is in full command at gluing the band’s time while maintaining harmony, melody and forward motion as well as contribution his own unique originals and arrangements.

It has been a busy summer for me. I recently moved into NYC and right before my move I was able to track the songs for my next upcoming cd.
