All music used with permission by The CB5
Chris Burge got his start at Ohio State University under the tutelage of legendary sax players Gene Walker and Hank Marr. Since then, he has chosen the road less travelled, performing in Thailand with the free jazz group ‘Honk Wail and Moan’, in maximum security prisons as part of a USO group and with Barry White.
Chris is everywhere. In fact, if you’ve purchased an American Greetings musical greeting card recently, odds are pretty good the music in that card was performed by Chris.
One of his favorite ensembles is a group he calls The CB5 and we were lucky to have them join us for a show in front of a sold out audience. Featuring Chris on Saxophones, Kip Reed on Bass, Bobby Ferraza on Guitar, Dave Thomas on Piano and Reggie Jackson on Drums and from November 4th, 2021 it’s The CB5 – Live at the Bop Stop.
This program is recorded at the Robert Conrad Studios at the Bop Stop in Cleveland, Ohio with additional production by Graham Rosen and editing for WOBC and WNPA provided by Dr. Pete Naegele and for our podcast and other affiliates by Shawn Gilbert and Carsen Gilbert at GilAzar media.
The Executive Producer is Daniel Peck.
