I am so lucky to have incredible musical friends. They are the folks who interpret the musical ideas that I have, and bring them to life .
People who don’t know me ask me how many people are “in my band”. I would say no less than 20 ! However, I haven’t fit them all onto a stage at one time. There are more permutations than I can comprehend. As Aaron says ” Rock and Classical music is kind of tribal/clannish. They are tight knit groups that try to stay together.” So I say jazz is more like an open marriage. For me, it’s a great chance to grow with some fine musicians.
Open Air Trio: the foundation: This trio works in a a plethora of contexts: as a trio, or with our friends. We read each other easily, playing from Farmer’s Markets to Art Openings, Community Gatherings.
This is me, playing at the Black Dog Cafe, where I curated “piano Fridays” for about 6 years
