First impressed by the energy of old style rock and roll saxophonists and improvisations, I later developed a taste for Miles Davis's dark funk and the energy of 60's era free improvisations. Added to that is a knack for rhythm, funk, and the music of Africa and Cuba.
I enjoy creating intense sound, from low flute whispers to roaring blues sax blasts. Now with live computer modulation, my sounds are heard at Hip Hop, Goa, and 'cross over' World Music dance parties.
My career highlight has been working with 'The Puentes Brothers' and Jose Sanchez, and other great Cuban Musicians. I wrote and wailed with 'Mortal Engine', a driving, all originals Intensity Music band.
I have played Funk, Acid Jazz with Mo Funk Collective and Soul Crib, Salsa and Merengue with Marlin Ramazinni, Orkestra La Clave y Tropicana, Rave and dance parties with Scott Bishop ( now with Blue Man Group) and Myles Bigelow, Rock and Roll sax with the Puff Girl burlesque shows and occasionally Swank, Jazz for many years with many groups.
I have recorded with acclaim on cds by 'The New Pornographers', veejay Su Kin Lee, and on Alpha Yaya Dialo's Juno winning album.
Currently I am working with Melonai Brisdon on a new live show and her upcoming album. I write constantly, and am always looking for projects to add intensity to.
