Now in production: My first recording as leader, an album of all original music featuring members of the seminal jazz bands Oregon and the Pat Metheny Group: Mark Walker on drums and percussion and 13-time-Grammy-winner Steve Rodby on bass.
I’m a pianist, composer, producer and music educator based in Oakland, CA. I’ve performed and recorded with internationally-known artists in the San Francisco Bay Area, especially in Latin and Brazilian music, including guitarist/composer Ray Obiedo and Latin jazz legend Pete Escovedo.
These unreleased solo piano improvisations are a far cry from anything else I’ve recorded. For the adventurous listener.
