 Testimonials
"IT WAS A SPECIAL HONOR TO WORK WITH CHRIS ALPIAR. A TRUE MUSICIAN IN HIS OWN RIGHT, HIS DIGITAL ORCHESTRATIONS ARE BRILLIANT. YOU FEEL YOU ARE EXPERIENCING A VIENNA SYMPHONIC CONCERT. (A DREAM COME TRUE FOR ALL MUSICIANS AND SINGERS.) BRAVO......"
-- Primo Kim, jazz pianist/singer


"Here's where sound, music and message meet! Chris Alpiar goes from the top down, then the bottom up. [He's] thoroughly professional and entertaining."
-- Baird Thompson


 Chris' Notes
One of my closest friends and brothers of the saxophone has his new band Swampdweller and is making a very original sound. Headed up by insane Alto Saxophonist Marc Fendel, and filled with some of Seattle's top Jazz, Hip Hop, and Funk musicians this gig is changing the shape of modern instrumental music.


Classic and Swingin' Jazz in Naples! No, Naples Florida not Italy! Check out one of the most deserving masters of Jazz guitar Dan Heck and his sexy and sultry wife Rebecca. Together they lead a strong Jazz scene in central Florida that mixes beautifully the raw creative energy and intellect of classic jazz, with a modern sophistication and enjoyable entertainment. Tell em Mike the Boofer sent ya!


"Buddy Rich is just incredible. He's a great, fantastic player. If it can be done on a drum, he can do it.......... I've heard people say he doesn't swing. I think he swings. I used to practice with the things he does. I've heard it said he's not subtle. I've heard him be so subtle, so gentle. This man can play"."
-- Ed Thigpen on Buddy Rich
