I started studying Jazz at the age of 21 from a blind man in Los Angeles. After 3 months he had me on my first job, though I did not feel I was ready. But he insisted, saying this is the way one learns to perform in public. Since then I have gone on to work with some of the world’s greatest jazz musicians including Ella Fitzgerald, Louie Bellson, Buddy Rich, and Herbie Mann to name a few. I have also played for 2 US Presidents, 1 Prime Minister of the UK, performed at the legendary Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and the historic Edinburgh Castle. It is my passion to “Keep the Music Playing”.
