ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
B. Christopher, like most composers, is not a household name. However, if you own a television, you have probably heard his music. With over 3,000 placements annually on virtually every channel, it would be difficult not to hear his work.

Like most studio musicians, his time is consumed recording. That is not to say he is a stranger to the stage. He toured extensively throughout North America for twenty years. While on a break from the road in 2002, he was contacted by the music director of ABC's "All My Children" looking for blues music. According to Christopher, "it was just the right place at the right time". As the opportunities continued to grow in the studio, it became clear that the focus needed to move strictly to recording. Inevitably, the hundreds of sessions would evolve into an album.

That album is The B. Christopher Band's debut into the adult contemporary genre. The balance between melody, technique, composition and improvisation is not an easy one to strike. But when listening to Christopher, one would think otherwise. With one foot in modern jazz, the other in the blues and an innate sense of melody, this instrumental offering is sure to please even the most discerning pallet. It is these qualities that helped attract some of the biggest studio musicians in the business to this project. Names like Nathan East, Anton Fig and Kenny Aronoff have all lent their talents to this debut.

It's been a steady evolution from the smoky blues clubs that shaped the soul of an extraordinary player into the polished session musician we hear today. In a world filled with talented musicians, there are a rare few that stand apart from the rest. For an artist to honestly tell their story, technical prowess is not enough. The real story is in the soul and conviction with which one tells it with. Christopher is one of the rare few that delivers the complete package.

Great album for guitar lovers....
As a lover of easy listening music and great guitar players, The B. Christopher Band really knocks the ball out of the park with this album. B keeps the album flowing from beginning to end and I find myself singing the guitar parts throughout the day. My favorites at the moment are "Islamorada" and "Eights" but with musicianship like Nathan East, Kenny Aronoff, and Anton Fig it's hard not to be drawn to those songs. Beginning to end this is a world class record. Many kudos to The B. Christopher Band on such a great debut release.

Great guitar playing
This is a must buy album if you're a fan of great guitar playing or great song writing in general. If all the band releases more music like this, The B. Christopher band is going to be the next big thing in the smooth jazz world.

What a great album...
Wow! What a great debut album from The B. Christopher Band! At first the A-list studio names drew me in to listen, but B. Christopher's guitar playing is what made me buy the album. B. Christopher is one of the few guitar players out there that actually writes great songs anymore. Match that with the playing of guys like Nathan East, Anton Fig, and Kenny Aronoff and you get an album that is truly magical. A must listen for any guitar lover, or just great smooth jazz lover in general. 5 stars!
