“Live at Jazz Standard” is the highly anticipated release from the Chris Bergson Band and was recorded live over two nights at NYC’s Jazz Standard in June 2013. The fifteen song CD contains eight brand new original songs from New York guitarist/singer Chris Bergson “…one of the most inventive songwriters in modern blues music.” (All Music Guide) as well as new arrangements of five older originals from the band’s back catalog. The album captures all the intensity, sweat and soul of a typical club set from the Chris Bergson Band featuring organist Craig Dreyer (Dispatch), first-call NY bassist Matt Clohesy and drummer Tony Leone (Phil Lesh and Friends).

Special guests include soul singer Ellis Hooks and a three piece horn section featuring baritone saxophonist Ian Hendrickson-Smith (Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings), tenor saxophonist David Luther (Bettye LaVette) and Grammy Award-winning trumpeter Freddie Hendrix performing horn arrangements by Jay Collins (Gregg Allman).

Jazz Standard has been a musical home for the Chris Bergson Band for the past ten years and provided an ideal venue for their first live record. The album was recorded and co-produced by award-winning producer/engineer Roman Klun whose credits include albums by the Spin Doctors, Joan Osborne and the Holmes Brothers.

With MOJO Magazine’s #1 Blues Album of 2008, Fall Changes, and #2 Blues Album of 2011, Imitate the Sun, New York guitarist/singer Chris Bergson has established himself as “one of the most inventive songwriters in modern blues music” (Richard Skelly, All Music Guide), creating his own blend of blues, roots and soul. Chris Bergson has performed and/or shared the stage with Hubert Sumlin, Levon Helm, B.B. King, Norah Jones, John Hammond, Etta James, and Bettye LaVette, to name just a few.

Born in New York City and raised in Somerville, Massachusetts, Chris Bergson returned to Manhattan in 1995. While backing jazz singers Annie Ross, Dena DeRose, Sasha Dobson and Norah Jones, he released Blues for Some Friends of Mine and Wait for Spring on Juniper Records in 1997 and 2000, respectively. In 2002 Bergson was appointed Jazz Ambassador of the USA by the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and he toured Africa with his trio. Evolving to further embrace the blues while also adding pop influences, he followed up with Blues (2003), Another Day (2005) and his triumphant artistic breakthrough, the widely acclaimed Fall Changes (2007) – MOJO’s #1 Blues Album of 2008 — that established him as an eloquent, evocative and lyrical songwriter with a sharp urban vision. Recorded at Levon Helm’s Woodstock studio, it led to Bergson being personally invited to perform at the famed drummer’s Midnight Rambles while paving the way for more stateside festivals and subsequent tours of Europe.

Bergson has performed and/or shared the stage with Hubert Sumlin, Levon Helm, Norah Jones, B.B. King, John Hammond, Little Sammy Davis, Etta James, Bettye LaVette, Annie Ross, Al Foster, and Matt Wilson, to name just a few.

Notable past performances include: Blues in Hell (Norway), Harvest Time Blues (Ireland), Groningen Rhythm and Blues Night (Holland), Moulin Blues (Holland), Noct en Blues (Chaumont, France), Leicester Blues Festival (UK), River to River Festival (NYC), Joe’s Pub (NYC), The Blue Note (NYC), Jazz Standard (NYC), John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts (DC), Saratoga Jazz Festival (NY), SXSW, Levon Helm’s Midnight Rambles (Woodstock, NY) and opening for B.B. King at B.B. King’s Blues Club (NYC).
