Actual Intelligence (2017)
This is Chris’ very first album under his own name and the debut of his jazz combo, The Chris Stevens Quartet. It was recorded mostly live in the studio and straight to 2 inch tape for a very earthy and vintage flavor.
After Midnight (2017)
“As we approach the light, we begin to see things once obscured by the night. As darkness fades, our hearts are filled with the newness of the day…”
Bright Side Of Midnight (2014)
“Bright Side Of Midnight is a body of work that is intended to express hope! On the surface it’s a blend of jazz standards with a twist and some really funky originals. However, the concept is not only about outlasting the darkness, but also racing toward the light! The difference between p.m. and a.m. can be as small as a second. Though you may not see it yet, your expectation is to see the sun arise out of the darkness. In the midnights of life, we have to maintain the hope of the sun. The bright side of midnight is that the new day has already begun.”
