About Us:

Performing music that swings, sounds cool, with great harmony and melody is my life's work. I prefer the structure of straight- ahead jazz as it gives me a chance to play the lines, phrases and licks that create an emotional response from my band members and the audience.

As bandleader, I keep us working, organized and write most of the arrangements and original material we use in our performances. We generally work as a trio up to a sextet and played every Saturday night at our “home base” at Mistral on Market Street for many years. We now perform at a great variety of locations across the southeast. Many of our members are working full time as musicians.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
