Chris Klaxton

Growing up in a supportive family, Chris Klaxton was encouraged to study music from a young age and inevitably found himself embarking on a life and career in music. While at the University of New Hampshire under the tutelage of Dr. Robert Stibler, Klaxton soon realized his commitment to the horn and was fortunate to form a relationship with jazz legend, Clark Terry. Learning the music and history from Clark, as well as traveling with Clark as an assistant and travel manager, were profoundly deep and eye opening experiences for Klaxton. A several year stint in Miami afforded Klaxton the opportunity to study with trumpet luminaries Brian Lynch and Jason Carder, perform alongside and learn from trumpeter Dave Douglas, as well as study composition and trumpet with renowned trumpeter and film composer, Terence Blanchard

Chris Klaxton: Starcode

Read "Starcode" reviewed by James Nadal

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
