About Me

Also adept on Bouzouki, Baglama, and Piano, he is a scholar on the music of Charles Mingus and has worked with Terry Waldo, Jose James, The Fat Cat Big Band, Junior Mance and many others. Being Nellie McKay's regular bassist, he naturally lives with two cats. Currently hard at work researching forgotten and never performed Mingus compositions for upcoming shows, he can be found at

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
