ABOUT

Conservatory trained musician. I played in a US Army band. I have played in small jazz groups and big bands. I played in one of the house bands at the Cincinnati Playboy Club. I can play almost any style of music.
While in college, I had the pleasure of playing a jazz festival with Dizzy Gillespie. I also played a gig with the Ink Spots.
