I'm a composer who tends toward funk and/or avant-garde music. I like many different genres. I've written songs in the funk, blues, and jazz genres. At times, I incorporate some odd time signatures into my work (7/4, 5/4, 27/8, 11/8, etc.). I finally picked up an 8 track recorder and have been recording some of my songs by myself to provide samples of my work. In these recordings, I'm playing everything on either a bari or an alto sax as well as singing.

I'm currently seeking horns (trumpet, trombone, saxes), keys, bass, guitar, drums, vocals for funk/soul/jazz/blues, etc. type music.


I have some PA equipment, and a friend of mine has recording equipment and has recorded demos before.
