Young musician with a passion for jazz.

About Me

I'm a young teen from NJ, and i have a true love for jazz. I mainly play tenor sax, which I have played for many years, but I also play electric bass, guitar, harmonica, hand percussion, and I'm currently learning clarinet and piano. I am starting to compose my own stuff and have already started arranging standards and classical pieces. My biggest influence for my music is the great Sonny Rollins. I am also inspired by Duke Ellington, Chick Corea, Miles Davis, Stan Getz, Avishai Cohen, Victor Wooten, Frank Wess, Benny Goodman, Joe Pass, Django Reinhardt, Benny Golson, and a few others. I may be young, but jazz is to me like an instrument is to a musician.

My Jazz Story

I love jazz because it has become part of me I was first exposed to jazz when I was younger through my own curiosity I met Dr. Billy Taylor at the WPUNJ Jazz Camp back in 2010, only months before he passed away The best show I ever attended was Sonny Rollins playing at NJPAC The first jazz record I bought was Saxophone Colossus by Sonny Rollins
