ABOUT

I am a comitted musician who loves music and jamming with other musicians. After spending many years in a studio enviroment, performing with many great musicians, branching out and joining a serious band has crossed my intentions. A professional band that keeps music first is the type of band for me. Although most of my experience with music is within the Jazz idiom, playing Blues and Rock has always been on the back burner of my shows and that I can always find a well- phrased bassline to fit any style of music. My style is a perfect blend of rythm and phrasing. Music theory is important in that it is a great source of creativity but I play by feeling not by theory. As rules are meant to be broken right...So there I am always a half note away from the right note.

Influences

I enjoy Yuseef Lateef, Charles Mingus, Stanley Clark, Ray Brown and Sting. I feel that Jaco Pasturious gave a great contibution to the bass world. Crosby ,Stills and Nash is another side of my musical taste and by far throw some Alice n Chains in there too. Rush has influenced my bass licks in that " Working Man " is just a natural classic. Bad Company is not to be underestimated, Led Zeppelin are heroes. James Brown is a KIng and Bootsy is Boss. These are my influences and not to forget Loggins and Messina " Pathway to Glory."
