Born in New York City but raised in Somerville, Massachusetts, Chris Bergson returned to Manhattan in
1995. While backing jazz singers Annie Ross, Dena DeRose, Sasha Dobson and Norah Jones, he released
Blues for Some Friends of Mine and Wait for Spring on Juniper Records in 1997 and 2000,
respectively. In 2002 Bergson was appointed a Jazz Ambassador of the USA by the John F. Kennedy
Center for the Performing Arts and he toured Africa with his trio. Evolving to further embrace the blues
while also adding pop influences, he followed up with Blues (2003), Another Day (2005) and his
triumphant artistic breakthrough, the widely acclaimed Fall Changes (2007) — MOJO’s #1 Blues Album
of 2008 — that established him as an eloquent, evocative and lyrical songwriter with a sharp urban vision.
Recorded at Levon Helm’s Woodstock studio, it led to Bergson being personally invited to perform at the
famed drummer’s Midnight Rambles while opening the way for more stateside festivals and subsequent
tours of Europe. The Chris Bergson Band’s next studio album Imitate the Sun (2011) was named MOJO’s #2 Blues Album of 2011 and their latest CD Live at Jazz Standard (2014) was named MOJO’s #3 Blues Album of 2014.
