Chris Klaxton is one of the great “triple-threat” (or what I like to say “triple-treat”) artists on the scene based in the New England area.  He’s got several great recordings out which you can check out here!  Do yourself a huge favor and check them out here!  Here’s what Chris had to say after hearing the test:
Example 1-Dave Douglas Live at R-bar

Dave Douglas

Example 2-Wynton live with Freddie Hubbard NYC

Freddie (Hubbard)

Example 3-Ryan Kisor Live in Japan

Woody (Shaw)

After:  Upon closer inspection, you can certainly hear Ryan in there…but MAN he’s got that Woody stuff worked out!

Example 4-Tom Harrell with Johnathan Blake

Tom Harrell

Example 5-Keyon Harrold live in NYC

YOU (Jason Palmer, lol)

After:  Keyon is incredible. I picked up his “introducing” record recently, but this live track is nuts. I could have sworn I heard some JP moments….

Example 6-Christian Scott Live at the R-Bar

This next one makes me feel real dumb. It’s got some Roy in there. But I feel like it could be Dizak (Phillip)….or even Billy Buss…or I DON’T KNOW!

After:  This still makes me feel dumb. Should have known that. That vibrato he’s got up there when he’s playing the blues….

Example 7-Art Farmer live in NYC

..and the last one makes me feel dumb too. An elder I haven’t dug into enough.
Marcus (Belgrave?)? Art Farmer?

Thanks Chris and I’m looking forward to sharing the stage with you again sooner than later!!  Please keep up with Chris at his website!
