About Chris Oatts – Philly based saxophonist, composer and educator Chris Oatts has been hailed as “a force to be reckoned with,” by All About Jazz. Chris has performed, recorded, or toured with the likes of Seal, Jazz Orchestra of Philadelphia, Chelsea Reed and the Fair Weather Five, The Philly Pops, Terell Stafford, Wycliffe Gordon, the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra and The Temptations.

Born into a musical family, Chris is the nephew of alto saxophone icon Dick Oatts with whom he studied at Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  His father Jim played trumpet with Stan Kenton, Machito, and the jazz rock group Chase while his two triplet brothers and multiple other family members are musicians as well. Chris’ grandfather Jack Oatts is credited by the Iowa Jazz Educators Hall of Fame for starting the first high school jazz band in the state of Iowa.  Chris continues to perform with his grandfather’s Selmer Mark VI alto saxophone to this day.
