Hailing from Chicago jazz trumpeter Chris Pasin studied at the famed New England Conservatory of Music where he majored in classical and jazz performance.

In the early ‘70’s he performanced at the Village Vanguard with the George Russell Big Band and also a steady six night a week gig at the Parker House with the Winiker Swing Band as well as shows at the Hyannis Melody Tent and North Shore Music Circus and various and sundry studio and commercial gigs in Boston as an in-demand trumpet player.

This was followed by two years on the road with the Buddy Rich Band in the early ‘80’s, playing with stars such as Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Sarah Vaughan, Mel Torme, Ray Charles, Nancy Wilson.

After this came ten years in New York City where he toured with the Toshiko Akioshi/Lew Tabackin big band internationally as well as freelancing in New York, where he recorded his first CD “Detour Ahead with Steve Slagle, Benny Green, Rufus Reid, and Dannie Richmond.

Add performing with Brother Jack McDuff, Stan Bronstein, Machito, a bit of broadway show work, and a host of salsa bands including Johnny Rodriguez and Fascinacion.

Fast forward to the present, after a long hiatus from music to raise a family, Chris is as active as ever, generating recordings, performances, and assembling ensembles ranging from avant garde improvised music to R&B and pop. His latest release, “Random Acts of Kindness,” is comprised entirely of his own compositions.

Current projects include “Ornetiquette,” a band with music of, and inspired by Ornette Coleman and Don Cherry, a new CD of reimagined holiday music, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” and a performance/recording project with pianist/composer Armen Donelian of the music of Richie Beirach.

Cohorts, collaborators and colleagues now include Armen Donelian, John Esposito, Scott Petito, Patricia Dalton Fennell, Rich Syracuse, Pete Levin, Jeff Siegel, John Menegon, Ira Coleman, Adam Siegel, Jerry Marrotta, Murali Coryell, and many others.
