Alongside his new quartet, young Chromatic Harmonica player Chris Maunders approaches the jazz standard repertoire in a refreshing manner. After becoming the country’s first to carry out a bachelor’s degree at the VCA on the Chromatic Harmonica, he is quickly becoming recognised as one of few in the world to play Bebop music with fluidity on an instrument that has lacked in popularity extensively since its heyday through the 30’s and 40’s. Delving from a diverse musical background, Maunders plays expressively through moving harmony as he interacts with a stella lineup of musicians.
