ABOUT

I'm a jazz-swing guitarist, who specializes in chord melody and Freddie Green-style rhythm. I'd like most to get an instrumental duo going, to play jazz standards and originals, but am also open to playing in a group of any size and instrumentation, possibly venturing into rockabilly or folk-rock-jazz Pentangle territory, as long as it involves a dedicated and creative approach to the music.
