Willie Oteri

"I'm mostly self taught. I learned Jazz on the street as well as rock and blues. If you are fine with that then we can talk. I'm fine with it." Already established as a guitarist why change horses?

While some are cautious about change for me it's about accepting it.” Oteri's flute and sax work became his focus recently after a purchase of a new flute in 2016 and a couple of tenor saxes in early 2017. “I played flute in my late teens after borrowing my sister's flute, since she was not very interested in it, and played professionally for several years in the early part of my career along with guitar, bass and pedal steel, whatever seemed to be needed
