ABOUT

I've played guitar, both professionally and recreationally, for over 25 years. My general focus has been towards early electric and country blues. I've also performed and recorded rock, country, and R&B styles. My focus now is towards early jazz and swing music. I'm particularly interested in the sounds and styles of yesteryear. I guess you could call it nostalgia. While I'm an experienced guitarist in general, I'm a novice when it comes to jazz. I'd love to find other jazz/swing musicians to work with so that I can continue my education into the genre.
