    If you have a shortlist of saxophonists and you are now seeing Chris White's profile for the first time, just check out Chris' verified credits and you'll see right away why he's zero-risk and why you're in very safe hands.

    Responsive and easy to work with, Chris went the extra mile and the results are top notch. He has that certain intangible x-factor that separates the men from the boys.

    We are delighted with Chris White's work.

    I love what he did for the tracks, honestly, beautiful sax player. Totally got the brief and delivered the results, I would choose him every time and will look forward to working with him in future.

  4. Review by Billy S.

    I've worked with Chris before, and he always delivers. I needed him in kind of a pinch this time -- very gracious, reasonably priced, and excellent turnaround...and of course he killed it on the track. Can't get much better than this!

  10. Review by Billy S.

    Chris performed saxophone parts for me on a hip hop/soul recording. He graciously embraced the project and performed creatively in a way that fit my request, with a very quick turnaround. If you want your recording to be taken to the next level, I highly recommend Chris White on the sax.

    Chris is a very talented sax player! The sax line that he created for my pop song was beautiful and the timing was perfect. As an added bonus, he created an additional background sax line which complemented the song perfectly and will definitely help take my song to a higher level.
