Chris Norton Chris Norton

Seeing Chris Norton perform is an experience you will not soon forget. This versatile singer, trumpeter, and band leader has the rare ability to leave audiences floating on a cloud with his unique voice and expert interpretation of jazz standards, while simultaneously electrifying guests with pop, R&B hits, rock classics, and soulful ballads. Whether he’s entertaining celebrities during New York Fashion Week, playing for philanthropists at the amfAR gala, thrilling sports executives and football fans during official NFL Super Bowl events, or performing for heads of state (including former presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton), Chris demonstrates his best with every note played and song sung – leaving each client satisfied, every single time.

Born in Jacksonville, Florida, Chris began playing the trumpet as a child – influenced by the hypnotic jazz stylings of Louis Armstrong and Miles Davis. As his craft developed, he found his voice – literally. The instrumentalist evolved into a talented vocalist, and began singing and playing trumpet in his live shows. After mastering both crafts, Chris decided to take his talents to the entertainment capital of the world – New York City.

It wasn’t long before Chris became one of the most sought-after and lauded performers on the NYC social scene. His unique shows earned him artist residencies and private events at the city’s most iconic venues including The Waldorf Astoria, The Rainbow Room, Cipriani, the St. Regis, The Plaza, The Standard Hotel, Le Cirque, The SoHo Grand, One World Trade, The New York Public Library, Lincoln Center, Metropolitan Oprea House, and Tavern on the Green.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
