ABOUT

Hi,

My name is Bill.

I taught and performed professionally for many years. Hustled, recorded, toured, etc... Glitterhouse Records Germany, Fire Records UK and Undertow Records St. Louis, random corporate sessions, dance accompaniment, Indian music recitals. Working jazz groups.

Looking for anything creative. Originals are good. Bebop, Blues, R&B, experimental, primal screaming...whatever you like.

I have an interest in Indian classical music as well and have some tabla ability.

Sitar anyone?

I'm returning to the states after several years in Asia. I'm up for anything from noisy Sunday jams to quiet gigs with brushes.

Influences

Everyone in the world who has ever produced a sound, also, the beautiful sounds of Miles, Trane, Fugazi, Radio Head, Neal Young, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Ustad Imrat Khan and way too many dead Motown guys, who truly understood the definition of "groove".
