ABOUT

I am currently gigging with several bands in the (925) Bay Area, so I'm not necessarily looking to join another project at the moment. That being said, I'm open to subbing if needed and may consider a new project ONLY if the circumstances are right.
I'm NOT looking to simply rehearse with a band. I'm sorry, but I just do not have the time for that.

I play the 4 main saxophones (mostly Tenor and Alto, but yes - I do play Bari and Soprano as well)
I love playing Funk, R&B, Soul, Smooth Jazz, Blues, etc.
I'm experienced playing in large and small groups. I also really enjoy working with vocalists (and giving them space); Can also solo well
