Original jazz influenced compositions with focus on the song instead of soloing. The music goes everywhere from swing to funk.


For the past few years I have been performing in jazz legend Chico Hamilton's group. Chico has been teaching me a holistic musical concept which consists not only of playing but arranging and composing as well. I feel that most jazz groups are in a hurry to get to the solo so they can show off what they have been practicing. In this scenario, the song gets lost, and so does the listener. We strive to play for the music - not other musicians.


One of my compositions was included on Chico Hamilton's last record, Twelve Tones Of Love, and has received extensive airplay. I currently do not have any official releases under my name. On the way!
