About Me

I'm a freelance bassist, songwriter and composer on the east coast. I am a Fodera and Epifani artist and a Berklee College of Music Film Scoring graduate and have a Masters degree from the Longy School of Music. Most recently, I've studied jazz bass with John Lockwood, Classical Bass with Pascale Delache-Feldman, Free Music with Joe Morris, and improvisation with Peter Cassino.

My group, the Evoke Ensemble's first release, “Groove for Peace”, is a collection of my original music and is an eclectic, bass driven, musical hybrid steeped in groove and improvisation, inspired by jazz, influenced by film, with flavors running the full musical spectrum from world music, to classical and beyond.

Bass Frontiers Magazine called it “a much needed and very cool release!”

My Jazz Story

I've been lucky to have met some of my heroes: Richard Bona, Brian Bromberg, Mike Stern, John Patitucci, Lincoln Goines, Matthew Garrison, Pat Martino... The first jazz record I bought was...Jaco Pastorius My advice to new listeners...Keep an open mind! Jazz is a living breathing art form that is constantly evolving. Always respect the past while embracing the future!

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
