Chris Cuzme is known throughout New York City for his tireless energy and inexhaustible creativity. With sensitive melodic ingenuity and a rich, bold saxophone tone with which to deliver it, he has been known to hypnotize listeners into overwhelming joy and make them weep without fully understanding why.
