“This is music that makes you want to write poetry, not a review. Walters’ pallet is so colorful it’s like a stroll through the world’s largest museum, or cocktails at a sidewalk cafe.”
- Austin Belmear, Jazz & Blues Beat
Anyone with a willingness to let the music capture the attention and garner the concentrated, eyes-closed listen should shout a “DAMN this dude is deep!”
- Bruce Pulver, Jazz Times
“. . . Well recorded and category-free, it's like setting your Pandora to a vaguely foreign film-noir meets classic jazz meets . . . well, whatever comes to Chris's fertile imagination . . . station from an alternative universe where artists flourish. It's an effort that I think many of us would consider in our best moments and then reject as unrealistic. Quite impressive.”
- Bob Mater, musician/producer
“Once, on a gig, after he had played some choruses on a tune, I told him that I was astounded. It was as if with his solo he had successfully impregnated his lover through a hole he had made in her side. Hardly orthodox, but their consummation was complete and their child was beautiful. His influences remain elusive, uncategorized. If you get too close you’ll get some on you. Scrub it off or let it change you. Change you so you are textured, ripe with nuance, beautifully marked with many truths. Careful what you say…he’ll make it his own just to show you that you spoke a thread of truth.
- Danny Coots, Drummer and Music Historian
