Christopher Rossi Christopher Rossi

Born and raised in the Boston, Mass. area, music has always been an important part of Chris’ life and it developed into quite a past-time for him. Growing up as a young boy throughout the seventies, he recalls sitting in his brother Ed and Ken’s basement level apartment listening to a LOT of music. Countless albums… several times over. It opened his ears to a lot of Classic Rock from the sixties and seventies, as well as some Soul/R&B from back in the day. Some of his favorite artists back then were The Beatles, J. Geils, The Allman Brothers, The Doobie Brothers, The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Boston, Steely Dan, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers and Billy Joel. Earth, Wind & Fire, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, George Benson and Jeffrey Osbourne… from the Soul/R&B genre.

As he grew into his teenage years, during the eighties, he began to appreciate more music from the Classic Rock genre from artists like Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Santana, Traffic, Genesis, Yes and artists like Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood among others. He watched for new music by these artists and others while listening to several local FM radio stations. This also allowed him to discover new artists and genres as he expanded his musical taste. In the early eighties, he discovered bands like U2 and The Police from a local station playing mainly post-punk or alternative music. This well before they became world renowned Popular Rock groups.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
