chris conway's history in jazz
Chris Conway
Chris Conway taught himself the piano as a child. Early influences were Tom Coster, Chick Corea, then Steve Kuhn & Richie Beirach before getting into avant garde realms in his college days, inspired by Howard Riley and Kieth Tippett.

He then formed bands - a trio Solaris, then another trio Happy Landings which later became a quartet, which was inspired by the ECM label artists like Arild Andersen's groups, Bobo Stenson, Rainer Bruninghaus etc. A collection from these years was gathered together and released on his Breathtaking CD. His Happy Landings trio albums have been remastered and relased on CD and download.

All through this time he was blending his jazz in east-west fusion groups The Rain Garden and Jazz Orient/Re-Orient and others. These slowly became the main outlet for his jazz music as his focus turned to songwriting. With Jazz Orient/Re-Orient he played twice at the Southbank and played with many of the best jazz and world music musicians

Perhaps due to his increasing piano bar sets, he returned to jazz, though often as a jazz singer and songwriter inspired by the interest in his jazz songwriting shown by Brazilian singer Ithamara Koorax. He released a live set of songs Minute of the Hour.

He has also kept up an interest in improvised music which can feature jazz elements in an electronic setting, often featuring his theremin.

In 2008 he released Chocolate Bossa - an album of jazz bossas featuring Brazilians Ithamara Koorax and Thiago DeMello as guests. In 2010 he released Glisten - an album of solo piano improvisations. In 2012 he released a reunion album with Re-Orient - "Undiscovered Time"
. In 2012 he released an album of atmospheric jazz Retracing My Steps. In 2014 he released an album of improvised pieces with 15 female vocalists Through Mirrors We Met which was the culmination of a year's work.
2015 sees him release an album with jazz singer Jodi Krangle and an album of solo piano improvisations, Midnight Window Blue.
In 2016 Chris released an album of a single 50 minute piano improvisation with sounds from outside the studio.
