ABOUT

Many years experience and touring, started on guitar and currently focusing mostly on basses. I did folk, rock, funk, soul, wedding & church music, and since switching to bass, mostly jazz, including my own trio and quartet and numerous engagements with vocalists. Definitely eclectic/hybrid style and interests, but jazz must be in the mix. My signature is really on fretless bass, although I play upright, and am well-versed in guitar (especially acoustic styles). My ideal chamber mix would involve multi-instruments, originals, mashups and re-worked covers in a jazz-influenced setting. I seek musicians with similar pro-experience, who have chops, and are ear-trained and can read music. Looking for something unique and hybrid.
