Chris Fraser Trio
Written by Gastown Admin
Vancouver raised guitarist, Christopher Fraser, has been called one of the jazz scene’s most exciting new voices today. An uncanny improviser, Fraser takes a modern approach to the traditional jazz idiom to create a unique sound that has been described as soulful, emotional and playful.
Considered a mainstay in Vancouver’s vibrant jazz scene, Fraser has performed
at all of the city’s main jazz venues, including at the 2017 TD International Jazz Festival. His debut EP “Give” was released in late 2016. Additionally, Fraser was recently awarded a grant from the BC Arts Council to pursue an eight-week mentorship with jazz guitar great Peter Bernstein in New York.
