"Chris Godber is more than a jazz saxophonist. He also works in the medical field so he knows firsthand how much the COVID virus has impacted our lives. Chris pays homage to his fellow medical heroes in the form of “Essential”, a robust groove begging to be released on wide and open roads. “Essential” lifts spirits with danceable rhythms sweet and low sax and a vibrant guitar run. Hear this new single in rotation on #jazzmoodsradio " -JazzMoodsRadio

"Godber’s grasp on what works is real and effective. You can’t go wrong with artists sporting this kind of vision. Two thumbs up!" -TheSmoothJazzRide.com
"He had Kenny G abilities and walked the room as he serenaded each table. He suprised us by wearing the wedding colors...even took a few requests, by playing a song or two for the parents...in their genre. We all loved it.;If it's at all possible, we would have loved to have him there all the way to the car on the way to the hotel."
"Words cannot express how much my entire wedding party absolutely loved Chris on Saturday. Chris had the best attitude and was extremely professional. He was so accommodating and really genuinely a nice guy. His spectacular performance truly made my vow renewal one that will be talked about for years to come. We love you Chris and we are looking for more opportunities to hire you again. I pray Gods richest blessings upon your life"
~Nina Holder, Ft. Walton Beach, FL
"If you’ve ever wondered what Kenny G would sound like if he kicked it up a notch, then you need to listen to this guy play... Chris has suffered from asthma since his youth, but has overcome it to the point of still being able to play… and play powerfully… truly a testament to his faith and determination. Chris Godber’s MY OFFERING will leave you both thrilled and inspired!"
~SCOTT O'BRIEN / smoothjazz.com
"Chris Godber plays a mean saxophone. Wow! Is he ever great! But Chris IS the instrument. His radiant spirit, winsome manner and awesome testimony make a Chris Godber concert a true worship experience. He left our congregation wanting more and he WILL be back.”
~Rex Bullock, Lead Pastor
Cornerstone Community Church
St. Petersburg, FL
"Chris Godber was told as a child that his asthma was too severe to play the sax. His lifelong determination to beat the odds has led the chart-topping performer to wide acclaim for his latest album STARTING OVER – a set that mixes edgy, in the pocket funk with dreamy laid back chill and lots of romance in between. Bringing a refreshing sound with a distinctive gospel/R&B twist to the genre, Godber is a master at weaving addictive melodies on soprano and tenor with funky, driving grooves along with stellar musicianship featuring Lowell Hopper and Adam Hawley on guitar and Eric Lampley on bass for eleven originals and one killer cover of Etta James’ “At Last.” STARTING OVER has never been so easy to do." ~JONATHAN WIDRAN / smoothjazz.com
"Chris Godber has literally raised the bar on this year's summer jazz singles with his latest release CD "Starting Over" and the first single called "Rain". With a style as smooth and funky straight out of Boney James' playbook, Chris holds his own, hitting it out of the park with a delicious groove with a robust bassline and buttery sax that is pleasurable with each listen." ~Jazz Moods Radio
"You can easily situate him between those other more famous smooth jazz sax players" -smoothjazz.eu
