Saxophonist and recording artist Chris Reinhardt presents a meltdown of Jazz, Soul and Pop that shines by his authentic performance and unique warm tone to touch on a variety of human emotions.
Chris Reinhardt has performed with multi-platinum Grammy winner and acclaimed vocalist Alicia Keys. His latest single "Stay Close" hit the Top 10 of the Jazz Adds Radio Charts (US) in late 2017. The track exclusively was powered by the JazzTimes Magazine in the 2018 Jan/Feb issue and online. Based in Berlin (GER), he recently gains inspiration from his Chicago and New York chapters to focus on the production of a genre melting next album.
Influenced by his own blend of jazz, with a touch of soul and r&b, Chris brings his fresh, elegant sax grooves to create his own twist on the contemporar ... y jazz genre. After the introducing 2011 appearance as a semi-finalist of the ISC International Songwriting Competition in the jazz category (Nashville, TN.) alongside competition winner and celebrated artist Gregory Porter, he has been in the studio crafting his solo debut album. Titled "Inside Identity" the story deals with the following tagline: a reflection on the cycles of love. The record features a variety of international guest appearances such as German pianist Felix Dubiel and American keyboardist Jesse Fischer. Produced by label head Astral22, the first single release "Mind Evolution" featuring jazz/soul vocalist Rogiérs (former keyboardist & background singer of Alicia Keys), entered the Top 50 in the Smooth Jazz Now Charts (US) for 16 weeks throughout 2013. Additionally the album opening track "Drift" reached the Top 10 on the Groove Wave Radio Charts (Brazil) for four weeks in 2014.
