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'm currently seeking musicians to help me record a portfolio of my work. I'm looking for people who can sight read and who can also do some improv work. I play sax, and am also interested in gigging with this outfit. I'd like the group to have a soul band/horn band layout (guitar, bass, drums, keys, vocals, horns) I've played in many bands over the years.

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.
