New York, New York

Chris Kelsey grew up in central and western Oklahoma. He moved to New York City in the mid-1980s. In the years since, he's made something of a name for himself playing, composing, teaching, and writing about strange and obtuse forms of modern jazz. He's recorded and produced upwards of twenty albums for the C.I.M.P and Unseen Rain labels, as well as his own Saxofonis and Tzazz Krytyk imprints.
