On Saturday night, July 18, the Chris Counelis Jazz Quartet takes the stage at Sound Bites Grill for three sets of incredible jazz!
This quartet features Chris Counelis on saxophone, Jack Peterson (a professor emeritus of jazz) on guitar, two of Sedona’s favorite musicians, Eddie Barittini on drums, and Troy Perkins on bass.
Chris Counelis grew up surrounded by jazz and Big Band music.
While it takes a lot of talent to get into the prestigious Berklee College of Music, it takes even more talent to be accepted there when you are only in high school. That’s exactly what Chris did!
Later, he majored in Jazz Performance at the University of North Texas, crafting his artistry under the guidance of some of the most talented professors in the music industry.
The great news is that you don’t have to go to Boston to hear him at Berklee or Denton to hear him in Texas. Chris has made it easy on all of us—he moved to Sedona so he performs surrounded by the red rocks.
Joining him on stage is Jack Perkins, a professor emeritus (retired professor) of jazz guitar and jazz improvisation. Having taught at Berklee College of Music and University of North Texas, he has touched the lives of many young jazz musicians.
Completing the quartet are Eddie Barittini and Troy Perkins, two of Sedona’s most popular musicians.
