About Me

Pianist and composer currently living and working in the Buffalo, NY area. See my AllAboutJazz Musician Profile for more information about me and my music.

My Favorites

  1. John Coltrane - hard to pick: Village Vanguard (1961), Sun Ship, One Down One Up, many more
  2. Miles Davis "Lost Quintet" - again hard to pick, but the Rotterdam concert is pretty great.
  3. Duke Ellington - very hard to pick: Newport, 1956? Okeh Ellington? Blanton/Webster band?
  4. Ornette Coleman - Complete Science Fiction Sessions
  5. Hampton Hawes - perhaps the duo album with Charlie Haden
  6. Arnold Schoenberg/Maurizio Pollini - Schoenberg piano music
  7. Ludwig van Beethoven - Symphonies 3, 5, and/or 9 (Fritz Reiner, Georg Solti, or George Szell)
  8. Beethoven/Artur Schnabel - Piano Sonatas (late sonatas especially)
  9. How many of these do I get?
