ABOUT

Sax player, wind synth player, composer, arranger. I'm extremely good at scoring arrangements for horns for any size group. I love to play Jazz, Funk, and Fusion, and I'm also good at Rock, R&B, Latin, and Pop music. I've played a lot of Blues on Jazz gigs, but I've never gigged with a Blues group. I'm good at reading music at any level if you need a studio sax player. I'm good at blending in with a beautiful warm sound and I can play with a screaming and growling Rock sound.
