CHRIS CODY BAND
“Accessible and mysterious at the same time.” Saturday Star, USA
Chris Cody released his latest album Not My Lover to great reviews at Foundry616 last year and now returns to Foundry616 for his first show for the year.
While living in France for over 20 years, Chris Cody played extensively in clubs and festivals around USA, Europe and Africa with a wide range of well-known musicians including Rick Margitza, Roy Hargrove, Herb Geller, Sunny Murray, Marcel Azzola, Glenn Ferris, Annie Whitehead, Barry Altschul, Carla Bruni, and Michel Jonasz. Aside from appearing on numerous CDs as both leader and sideman, he has also written and produced music for theatre, television and cinema in Europe, North America and Australia.
Cody’s music reveals not only his deep love of the jazz and classical traditions, but also the influence of contemporary French, African and Arab musicians he has worked with in Paris. Blended with contemporary urban grooves, its originality, warmth, lyricism and humour have seduced a wide and diverse public around the world receiving rave reviews from the critics.
