"Was at the Pannikin in Flower Hill last night to listen to the the guitar mastery of Chris Montgomery and got an over the top treat. Chase Morrin - piano - was the other half of the duo. It's been a long time since I've heard such sweet jazz as produced by these two talented musicians. Chase is only 18 and a graduate of Canyon Crest Academy. Hope to see this duo together again and often. If you get the opportunity, don't miss it. Would love to see a CD in their future."
