The best kept secret in music


This band has no press


My first recording was a cassette called"Fred Woodard". My second recording was a CD called "Arrival"and my third and most recent CD is called "1715"


Feeling a bit camera shy


My primary influences are, Grant Green, Wes Montgomery,Kenny Burrell, George Benson,B.B. King,Albert King,Sonny Rollins, John Coltrane, Miles Davis and Charlie Parker.

I like the trio format because it's a very open and loose sound. I can play melodies in single lines, octaves or block chords or a combination of all three without worrying about clashing with another chordal instrument.

I like to play music that makes people move and think. For example I'll play something familier to draw people in then put a twist on it to keep an element of surprise in the music.
