My fondest dream would be that my songwriting and performance speak effectively to the past, present and future of the jazz art form that I love. Something much larger than myself and my effort will determine if I have been successful at my artistic mission.
I love jazz because it's been a life's work.
I was first exposed to jazz by my father.
I met Hampton Hawes.
The best show I ever attended was Les McCann.
The first jazz record I bought was Herbie Hancock.
My advice to new listeners is to listen at a comfortable volume.
