CP Unit (US)
Chris Pitsiokos is a saxophonist and composer who combines the lyricism of the American songbook and the directness and immediacy of extreme forms of rock music with the attention to detail and abstraction of contemporary music. Pitsiokos’ adept playing is at times moving and full of emotion, while in other moments it can appear feverishly screeching and unsettling. The New Yorker’s compositions give his four-man band CP Unit the chance to develop a common vision together, without constraining the individual musicians’ expressive voices.
