My Jazz Story
I have been playing jazz for roughly 30 years on my 160 yr old beautiful German bass. In that time I have had the opportunity to perform with many jazz luminaries as well as many jazz "heros" of mine. While I have performed on many other artist's projects, and served as producer on several nice records, this is my first recording project as a leader.
