Most available:


Currently working primarily in Salsa, Latin Jazz, Classic Rock, and casual jazz gigs. Have worked many years in Funk, R&B, Alt Rock, even some Folk. I think like a producer when I play (ie., make the best MUSIC possible), and have worked to develop a variety of "chops".

Instrument experience:



Unless gig specifies other equipment, mostly work with Korg Triton and Roland 300GX. Have a Fender Rhodes, but like to keep it in the studio (easier to just rent one). If gig pays well long term, will invest in different equipment if needed. Have found that most listeners care not what I'm using, only what music comes out of the equipment.
