Verri Berri Fusion 1 Set 2
VBF Volume 1 Set 1 is a collection of fusion jazz in a wide musical range from swing to hard rock and roll. The songs are mainly 'funk' in conception featuring catchy melody lines followed by solos. The song sequences are paced for a better audio 'ride'. The solo feature of Chrys Berri's style allows for the creativity of the performer to capture spontaneity making these jazz numbers highly enjoyable to the jazz enthusiast. VBF Volume 1 Set 2 is the second Chrys Berri album creation filled with musical incarnations from Rolls to Corvette in the Spindreamer Music tradition. The songs are stylized hook-n-grove that grasps a sense of the melody and let's it go...witness Breathless...wild grove to pure jam. VBF Vol.1 Set 2 is a remarkable collection of fusion jazz that trigger different energies from traditional swing to hard rock and roll. Chrys Berri was surrounded by music as a child. His parents were both professional musicians who encouraged musical training for the whole family. He studied piano with his siblings until starting woodwinds in Middle School. High School included expanding his experience with more instruments, composition, arranging and jazz training. Chrys attended college at C.S.U.N. where he received advanced training in theory, composition and performance. He has had much experience performing professionally as a sideman and leader. Chrys now owns and manages Berri's Music in Simi Valley, California where he teaches, arranges music, operates a professional recording studio and performs in the community. Some say he sounds like: Tom Scott; The Wave; Dave Collins; The Yelllowjackets/ Rippingtons; Spyro Gyra; Grover Washington Jr., but mostly he excels at being uniquely, verri, verri, Berri!
