Mississippi native Chris Alford is a creative guitarist and composer who has performed in juke joints as well as concert halls around the country.

He is just as likely to galvanize an audience with peculiar, angular, electric flourishes as he is to allure with luscious, atmospheric harmonies. An openness to sound and collaboration, allows Alford to shape and guide the music in an organic flow. Since 2009, Alford has been active in a flourishing, creative music scene in New Orleans

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
