Solo in the Square or backed by his ensemble in a large concert hall, Chris Mitchell pleases music lovers
Its a warm evening outside Turquoise Grill & Bar in Sugar Land and the smooth tone of jazz artist Chris Mitchell’s saxophone fills the air. Members of the BAC Photography & Design Photography Club, hungry for a subject, converge on the musician and begin snapping away.
Its just another gig for Mitchell who’s played for crowds as small as 6 photographers and as large as thousands, performing the National Anthem at Minute Maid Park.
