Strangest Hammond Organist
I've lived in NYC for 21 years. I am a Grammy Nominated, Downbeat "Rising Star", Hammond Endorsed, Posi-tone recording artist. I've recorded and performed with everyone from Lou Donaldson to Joni Mitchell. I also write about music. I write master classes for Keyboard Magazine and Downbeat and reviews for the NYC Jazz Record.
My Jazz Story
I love jazz because...Nobody tells me what to do :)

I met [musician name]...
The best show I ever attended was...Joel Frahm sitting in at a Jam Session at Smalls
The first jazz record I bought was...Unfinished Business by Jimmy Smith
My advice to new listeners...Open your Mind!!
Or whatever else you have in mind.
