An all-round drummer Chris Baker played jazz in his early years in the English Midlands, before relocating to Los Angeles to study under some of the legends of modern drumming: Steve Houghton (Woody Herman), Ralph Humphries (Frank Zappa) and Joe Porcaro (Frank Sinatra).

Chris has toured internationally and records with a wide range of important ensembles. He continues to develop headhandsfeet, a successful teaching practice. Chris currently divides his time between London and the Midlands.
