SEEKING

Acoustic Guitar, Piano.

ABOUT

I identify as a bass player.
I play upright and electric bass and a bit of guitar.
I am currently inspired by Julian Lage in his Chris Eldridge and Bill Frisell projects. I'd enjoy working with a guitar player on Gypsy Jazz or Bluegrass. I'd enjoy working with a pianist to work through the Real Book. I'd also enjoy working with a singer who can handle a voice and string bass ensemble.

Influences

Bill Evans; Edie Gomez and Scott LaFaro. Jaco Pastorius in Weather Report and Stanley Clark in Return to Forever are why I play the bass. Ron Carter. The Beatles; but not Paul McCartney. Motown era Michael Jackson. I grew up in the late 70's early 80's listening to The Ramones and the Clash and King Crimson. I like Pat Metheney's work with Charlie Hayden and Andy Summers work outside of the Police.
