About the In The Style series:
The In The Style series focus strictly on the playing style of the artist. These are not general "how to" lessons. The goal of these lessons is to give insight on a wide range of topics relevant to the musical style of the artist. Advanced students will be able to immediately absorb and work on many of the concepts covered in the lessons. Beginner and intermediate level students will benefit greatly from the transcriptions of the numerous video performances with close ups when relevant. Music is like a language, and it is best learnt by surrounding yourself with better musicians. The goal of the "In The Style Series" is to give you this access, as much as possible, in the comfort of your own home!
About Chris Flory:
Chris Flory played his first gig at the age of thirteen and continued playing in rock and blues bands until his late teens. He took his first jazz guitar lessons from Tiny Grimes, in Harlem, when he was seventeen. He continued studying jazz with another New York teacher for most of that year, but did not start playing jazz professionally until he was twenty and living in Providence, RI. He first led his own group there and then joined tenor player Scott Hamilton's quartet. That group temporarily disbanded in the summer of 1976 when Scott and Chris made their separate ways to New York.
In New York in the late seventies, Chris was around an impressive array of older jazz masters and played gigs with Hank Jones, Illinois Jacquet, Jo Jones, Buddy Tate and others. Scott Hamilton began to have more frequent work for the Quartet (later Quintet), including recordings for Concord Jazz and many overseas tours. Chris was a part of Scott's group until the early nineties. Benny Goodman employed Chris for his sextet from 1978 until 1983.In the 1980's Chris also worked for or recorded with such departed jazz greats as Roy Eldridge, Ruby Braff, Maxine Sullivan, and Rosemary Clooney.
