Latest Album

Now, with WONDERFUL WORLD, Chris Standring's 14th release as a leader, he is once again pushing the envelope of taste and style with a project that is wholly different from anything he has done before. Unlike all his other projects, he composed just one of the tunes on the album and instead concentrated on putting his own unique spin on songs from the Great American Songbook. The album also features a 19-piece orchestra, which is something he always wanted to do. Standring says, “I chose these songs because I love them but also because they could be arranged for a full orchestra or a trio setting. I think there’s something magical about the sound of a guitar and orchestra playing together, but I won’t always be in situations where it’s possible to use an orchestra. So the arrangements had to be flexible enough to work in a trio setting.”
