ABOUT

Actively seeking upright bassist for our guitar trio as our bassist will be moving in July. Current repertoire is majority straight-ahead and standards.

I'm a Kansas City native where I played for a living (and for fun) for many years. Seeking folks to do straight-ahead jazz, hard bop, Headhunters style jazz/funk, experimental eclectic, proggy jazz (a la Soft Machine), free jazz, psych, Krautrock, whatever. And perfectly content to quietly and tastefully back vocalists as well.

Brief rant: Dear humans, It is now the year 2018. How can you NOT have audio samples on your profile? It's like an artist's portfolio with blank pages.
