Chris rarely speaks, preferring to let his saxophones do his talking for him (usually as part of his band, The Grandsons
). When he does speak, it's in low tones - you have to lean in to hear him, and that's when he strikes. Chris possesses an uncommon wit - ascerbic, yet not unkind, such that he can remind you of your shortcomings and still have you thanking him for it. Chris's gentle spirit and giant sax sound keep him in high demand north and south of the Mason-Dixon line.
