A concert from the 2010 Halifax Jazz Festival - Chris Church and Freinds - Return To The Coast
Although Chris Church's foundation is in classical music, after university he found himself drifting away from classical performance as his interest in improvisation increased. Along with a strong classical music presence, Halifax is also home to a variety of other musical styles which Chris was drawn to. He got into jazz, pop and rock along with more avant garde improvisation with a range of talented musicians. Around the time Chris moved to Toronto, he started playing with guitarist Jesse Cook. It was at this point in his career that he started really listening to and playing styles from all over the world. Chris has always had an affinity for world sounds, playing at various world music festivals he could perform with and learn from other musicians. The musicians he toured with and met on the road truly opened the doors of world music.
