The American psychologist Abraham Maslov said “A musician must make music, an artist must paint, and a poet must write if he is to be ultimately at peace with himself.”
Those words have living evidence in the form of a young double bass player named Chris Pitts.
A native of Long Beach, Calif., Pitts spent the majority of his youth in the creative melting pot of Seattle. Pitts’ introduction to music came behind a drum set in high school band. After graduation, Pitts almost joined the military, but after his family moved to Texas, Pitts decided to try college.
