Chris Guthrie Project – Gaining Altitude

Gaining Altitude is a new release from Seattle’s Chris Guthrie Project. The album features 10 original tunes co-written by keyboardist Chris Guthrie and contemporary jazz hit maker Steve Oliver (who also produced the record). It’s a fresh point of interest on the contemporary jazz landscape.

The album is a mix of pastoral ballads and up tempo numbers featuring both piano and guitar, blurring the line between traditional and contemporary. Recommended by DJ Norrie Lynch to the smooth jazz community, you find it at CDBaby.
