Now live! A Kickstarter for my debut album as bandleader and composer with a dream team: members of legendary jazz bands Oregon and the Pat Metheny Group: Paul McCandless on saxes, oboe, and bass clarinet; Mark Walker on drums & percussion; and Steve Rodby on acoustic bass.
My Kickstarter deadline is Friday, October 9 at 8:00 pm Pacific Time. I’m only 39% funded, so I need your help. Your contribution will support original music and would be much appreciated!

I’m a pianist, composer, and music educator based in Oakland, CA. For almost 20 years, I’ve performed and recorded with top artists in the San Francisco Bay Area, mainly in the Afro-Cuban/salsa, Latin jazz, and Brazilian jazz scenes. I’m currently working with guitarist/composer Ray Obiedo’s Mistura Fina, which blends Brazilian jazz, Latin jazz, and East Bay funk and features singer Sandy Cressman.
The solo piano improvisations are the first original music I’ve released, and are a far cry from anything else I’ve recorded. For the adventurous listener.
