Chris Bakriges and Zack Brock perform original jazz
Pianist Chris Bakriges and violinist Zack Brock of Snarky Puppy perform original jazz.
“...feast your senses upon some of the most wonderfully written and robust music that seems expressly created to fire up the imagination.” - Global Jazz Media
Chris Bakriges uses life’s beauty in the face of human hardship to influence his music. The resulting music presents a roller coaster of emotions, tempestuous, contemplative, lyrical and thrilling. His ethnomusicology background allows him to incorporate a wide range of influences, from jazz, global, blues, to chamber orientation. Bakriges released two CDs last year and has been performing nationally and internationally since 1992.
"The pre-eminent improvising violinist of his generation." - Neil Tesser
