ABOUT

Professional guitarist and arranger for 20 years doing local gigs, house band gigs in SF during the late '60's, on the road from "71 - '79 primarily with dance and show groups, some musical theater, undergraduate degree in music composition + some graduate work.

I'm about to retire and have been woodshedding for the past year. I'm seeking others interested in honing their jazz skills - bebop, American songbook, R&B, contemporary jazz ... open to sharing ideas and learning tunes together, coming up with personalized arrangements.
