an award winning composer of chamber music with university honors and published and recorded compositions, I am a jazz musician.. I've played with, among others, woody shaw, jon hendricks, and mike nock.. I'm no longer a classic cover tune or mainstream jazz artist, rather a jazz musician who believes in world music as trane did.. seeking to blend many genres into a fresh and innovative style of jazz..
after many years on the axe I've finally done a CD showing my style.. RAPSTER GUITARS IT.. 15 original songs and collabs featuring syntopia, redeyeC, margot du bois, TLT50, big daddy cee and brian mattson.. order here direct:
