"Chris Bergson is among the best of the young jazz guitarists," says guitar great Jim Hall. With a warm, clear sound, a great love of the blues, and a penchant for hard driving swing, Bergson displays a lyricism and maturity well beyond his twenty-four years. He has worked with many of the best instrumentalists and vocalists in the New York scene. 20th Century Guitar Magazine says that Bergson’s performance in his debut recording as a leader, Blues for Some Friends of Mine, "proves himself ready for the big time." In addition to his formidable guitar playing, Bergson is also an accomplished composer with a highly personal style. Bergson can be heard on the Juniper records releases of Doug White’s Esplanade, and Annie Ross Sings Cool for Kids. Look for Bergson on the Juniper release with bassist Neal Miner, The Real Neal, and Bergson’s own
album, Wait for Spring.
