ABOUT

I was a jazz piano player for nine years in the 50s and 60s. I quit the business in '64 because I was getting married in '65 and didn't want to be out till all hours.Then I went into the graphics business, but kept playing and learning new things. In the 90s I played in a couple church bands (EFCC and Green Valley). But, nothing much lately. But, now I can play full time and/or tour. My wife of 52 years died last April (cycling accident), so I'm in a position to play full time and tour, if required.
