He currently plays keyboards for Terry Callier when touring outside America and appears on his latest and forthcoming Albums. Chris is also a permanent member of, and has released three albums with,The Robin Jones Latin Jazz Sextet and King Salsa.
Peckham Royalty was formed in April 2001 after Gordon heard Chris playing with Robin Jones. In their first session they wrote "Minor Villain" and a few CDRs were passed out; one of which found its way to Danny Krivit who then played "Minor Villain" at "Body & Soul" and led to it being signed by Wave Music.
The duo continues to hone their sound which they would describe as "deep and jazzy" with a balance of programmed and organic elements.
