ABOUT

I play mostly electric guitar and piano now. I started learning piano on my own about 10 years ago and took some lessons in the last few years. I am a song writer with roots back in the late '60s and '70s - Buffalo Springfield, Tim Buckley, Beatles, Dylan, Neil Young, etc. but have listened to mostly deep soul, jazz, funk, New Orleans R&B for many years. I had a band in the 80's and then started a family and never stopped playing, but just alone mostly, playing with various multi-track recorders and DAW when I wasn't raising a family. On my own again and ready to play with people who
a) love to jam
b) are interested in expanding out some original tunes

Influences

See description. I think the late '50s and early '60s of jazz was the greatest explosion of music (Miles, Coltrane, Bird, Blakey, Morgan, etc.) preceding the rock takeover of the blues in the '60s, both of which have combined to lay the foundation for most of the forms of music heard today. I am a rocker at heart, being most comfortable in the blues scale with some good funk groove.
