“Grant says he ‘s probably played with Chris more often than any other single musician! Their rapport is huge and their story goes back quite a ways. Chris’s own career in jazz is much longer and wonderfully storied. He moved to Oakland as a kid with his mom, learning directly from great players of the 1960s, was present at the birth of free jazz, toured with Art Blakey, recorded with Rosemary Clooney… and much more. In the course of the Duo! session, we’ll get Grant and Chris to give you a bit of their history between tunes, and to clue you in to some of the obscure history of jazz in the Bay Area and its players.”
