Christopher Cox is a improvising trombonist from the San Francisco Bay Area, who now lives full time in Budapest, Hungary. He has played and/or recorded with the late Marco Eneidi and Glenn Spearman, George Cremansci, William Parker, Byarfas Attila, Hock Erno, Aram Shelton, Miklos Szilveszter, and many others. In addition to creative improvised projects, he has also recorded and performed all over the US and Cuba with the band Junkyard Empire and worked with poets Amiri Baraka, Sha Cage, and E.G. Bailey. Between the years 2011-2019 he took an extended hiatus from playing professionally and established himself as an educator and scholar, receiving a PhD in Geography along the way. However, now it is music that he most wants to pursue.
Since moving to Budapest in 2019 he has started performing more regularly and is actively seeking opportunities to play around Europe. He is particularly interested in projects that take a kind of social urgency to them.
