ABOUT

I'm looking for some good Guitar or Keyboard or Bass Player who is able to play Bossa Nova and Jazz with me (saxophone). I prefer to play as Duet (you and me).

My plan is that hopefully we will get some gigs in local restaurant, cafe, bar type place (please don't expect "paid gig" for the beginning).

The reason I prefer the Duet type unit is that it is very economical for the prospective clients in this shrinking economy situation. In addition this minimum type unit saves the space to play, which means that we might have more chance to be accepted by the small spaced clients as well.

BTW, I play Tenor, Soprano and Alto Saxophones and use "Logic Pro X". Also I'm very good at reharmonizing and arranging music. If needed, I am able to drive to your place.

I graduated from New England Conservatory (Jazz Study) in 1999.
