New Recording: "Conversation" Duo with Saxophonist Benn Clatworthy

Benn and I have been playing together for just under a year. We were introduced to each other by bassist Henry Franklin. We had quite fun playing duo together that he decided to cut an album at Nolan Shaheed's studio in South Pasadena. The idea with this project was to play with the time and really stretch and have musical conversations. For a copy of the CD, please personal message me in the Contact tab of this website and i will send it to you. they sell 1 for $10 or 2 for $15. Hope you enjoy!

Kenny G's Bossa Nova Album

I'm on Kenny G's latest album "Brazilian Nights". I have a featured solo on the track "April Rain", an original by Kenny. Here's a link to where you can buy the album.

It was great to work with Kenny. He invited me to his house and was such a kind cat. He gets a bad rep in most circles but I won't say anything down about him! Thanks Kenny for featuring me on your record. 

"La Fiesta" Big Band Album Review

For the past 3 years, I've had the pleasure of rehearsing almost every Tuesday morning at Local 47 with the Mike Barone Big Band. Mike's a brilliant composer and arranger who wrote for the Tonight Show for 30 years. His band includes some of the finest cats in town, who I feel lucky to share the room with. Anyway, we just recorded an album entitled "La Fiesta". Below is a link to a review that came out recently.

Come hear the band play the Lighthouse Cafe in Hermosa Beach on Sunday October 4th. If you like big band early in the morning, you can also come to any of the rehearsals at the Musicians Union Local 47 in Hollywood from 10am-12:30pm!
