My Jazz Story
I was introduced to jazz by Philadelphia drummer and music journalist Bruce Klauber at the age of 9! We have been collaborating since, representing over 5 decades of performing together. I've created a concert series "Music by Intention" dedicated to the popular standards within The Great American Songbook. Performances include my jazz renditions of many popular standard songs, demonstrating how this musical genre led to the creation of jazz, America's unique and enduring contribution to the arts.
