Chris gets a surprise phone call from Paul Butterfield who happened to see him play at a few gigs and they eventually started a project together!
After Chris moved to New York, he ran into bass player Gordon Edwards. Gordon then invited Chris to play at his club and the two quickly hit it off! Soon after, Chris joined the rest of the group and they became the jazz-funk band Stuff.
