Now in post-production! I’m thrilled to announce my first recording as composer and bandleader: an album of all original music featuring members of the celebrated jazz bands Oregon and the Pat Metheny Group: Paul McCandless on reeds, Mark Walker on drums and percussion and Steve Rodby on acoustic bass.
You can support the production of this album and get some great rewards, including a CD, a full-album download, a book of sheet music of the songs, and video chats with me. Click here for more information and to make a contribution.
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.
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.
