Joe Dimino from Kansas City's Neon Jazz radio program and blog interviewed Chris about Glass Spheres. You can listen to the interview on YouTube by clicking here.

There's a nice review of Eternal Youth on Blurt;  you can check it out here:  Blurt review of Eternal Youth.

Cleveland's historic Scene Magazine ran a nice story about a track from Eternal Youth, "Be Honest with Yourself." Chris's grandfather, Art Mondak, began working on the song in 1955, and Chris finished it off and recorded it in 2019.  

Another Cleveland news organization ran an even longer story about "Be Honest with Yourself."

Thanks to WEFT in Champaign, IL, which listed Eternal Youth as one of its 20 most-played jazz CDs in 2019, and to KUSF radio in San Francisco for including Eternal Youth (along with albums by artists such as Prince and Vampire Weekend) as one of their top 20 albums in August, 2019:
