Evolution of Cool
Presenting Chris Anderson at the organ. A sound and style from the past... reinvented!! After more than 30 years in the wholesale music industry working as an international concert artist/clinician and Sales Manager for Hammond Organ Company and Yamaha Piano Corporation, Chris decided to return to his roots as a musician. Growing up in Michigan and moving to Sarasota in 1981 Chris continued his touring through all 50 states, Japan, Australia, Germany, Denmark, Switzerland and all of Canada. Progressing into various sales and marketing positions through the last 12 years made Chris realized he was missing the part he loved the most. That is what you will hear on this just released recording 'The Evolution Of Cool'. Chris' Hammond B3 with it's modifications creat a type of musical experiance that revives an old musical pulse with a new twist of sound from the unique addtion of guitar and 'live' strings. Recorded in Nashville and produced by the wonderfully creative Phillip Keveren it establishes a 'new lane' for this type of music. A reinvention of a type of musical styling that used to sell millions of recordings from organists such as Ethel Smith, Jimmy Smith, Ken Griffin, Bob Ralston, Earl Grant, and one of Chris' major influences, Lenny Dee. Please enjoy the extraordinary, powerful, and tasteful renditions of some of the great songs from the past from Chris Anderson.
