Chris Anderson

Chris Anderson is a highly influential pianist, having worked with luminaries such as Sonny Rollins, Charlie Parker and Dinah Washington among others. He is credited with teaching Herbie Hancock, who to this day remains a huge fan.

Chris was born in Chicago, in 1926. His enduring fascination with harmony, which was sparked by film soundtracks, began well before the age of ten. He had already started to teach himself to play on the family piano, so well in fact that he never took lessons. This is a clue to the amazing originality and sheer talent of his harmonic ideas.

To this day, Chris Anderson remains legendary among musicians and essentially unknown to the jazz record buying public.
