LEADING LIGHT OF JAZZ
From a very early age, Christian possessed an insatiable appetite for music. He was enrolled in music classes at age four and wrote his first composition at five.
To call him a jazz pianist doesn’t really do justice to his style or influences. Sure, he’s got the swing and bebop chops, but Afro-Cuban and Latin flourishes sparkle through his hands as they dance across the keys. His lightning-fast fingers create complex textures and rhythms all while holding down the groove and weaving intricate melodies…and he makes it look easy.
