I like to play jazz standards, especially jazz blues, but I also like gypsy jazz, jazzy Americana, hillbilly jazz, jazzy Celtic, Western swing, even jazz fusion -- basically anything that's jazzy and swings. I am familiar with dozens of jazz standards, and my personal "Real Book" contains more than 100 songs.

When it comes to groove, my bottom line is simple. Like Ella said, "it don't mean a thing if if ain't got that swing."

And since we are now living in the time of COVID19, I should point out that I have a lot of experience with remote collaboration and over-dubbing bass into existing tracks.

You can contact me through either Bandmix or my web site at astonisher dot com. There's a music/jazz section there, and a contact form for me at the bottom of every post...
