Chris Hopkins



Fats Waller, Duke Ellington, and Nat King Cole have inspired Chris Hopkins, who was born in Princeton in 1972, to develop a style of his own as a pianist and as the saxophonist for the quartet Echoes of Swing. He has performed more than 4,000 concerts around the globe, solo and alongside stars like Till Brönner, Dick Hyman, and Clark Terry. His discography of more than 30 CDs has received such awards as the “Prix de l’Académie du Jazz” and the German Record Critics’ Prize.
