 Frederick, Maryland, USA

I offer a top notch jazz performance with a trio or quartet playing music from the 1930's to the present. Originals, jazz tunes, and standards as well as pop tunes of the last 40 years played from an acoustic basis, incorporating elements of swing, funk, latin and free improvisation.


I've been a full time professional musician since 1979. I've had a 26 year career in the military with the Army Jazz Ambassadors. As a free-lance musicians I have played saxophone with acts such as The Nelson Riddle Orchestra, The Four Tops, Chris Isaak, The Beach Boys, Little Antony, The Jimmy Dorsey Orchstra. I have led my own trio, quartet and quintet in the DC/Baltimore area for the greater part of the last 25 years. I am a publisher composer and arranger, having written more than 100 works for big band.
