ABOUT

I've been a pro/semi-pro for over 30 years. I've worked with The Platters, The Coasters, Bo Diddley, Randy Brecker, Steven Stills etc. and more bands than I can count. I just moved to Portland from Tokyo in April 2015, but I've been gigging pretty steady since - mostly private gigs (Nike, U of O and others). I'm available on trombone, sax, flute or any combination of the above - I've played professionally on all of them. I'm currently working with a soul/Latin/funk band called The Gatico Groove.
