After a nearly 10-year break between recordings, Cody ChesnuTT returned in 2012 with Landing on a Hundred. The album showcases a new songwriting direction, a rich R&B sound and even a string arrangement in the song "Chips Down (In No Landfill)."

ChesnuTT brought that song to life during his recent visit to Portland, Ore. He was joined by pianist Alvin Lee Giles and members of the Portland State University Orchestra for this opbmusic session.
