How did you get into jazz?

In high school, in the early '70's, I discovered The Jazz Crusaders and Jimmy McGriff, and the legendary Bay Area FM Station "KJAZ".

Are you a musician or a fan of jazz? Tell us as much as you'd like.

I'm a drummer and percussionist and a jazz fan. Over the past 25 years I've played Latin Jazz, rock, Celtic, and Middle-Eastern music on an assortment of drums. For the past 5 years I've been studying jazz and Latin drum set. My goal is to find some jazz musicians to play with to gain the experience to play live jazz.

What part of Sacramento (or elsewhere) do you live?

I live in Arden Park

Who's your favorite jazz group or musician?

Theloneous Monk, Miles Davis, Art Blakey, Buddy Rich, Jimmy Smith, Poncho Sanchez, and many more!

Please upload your face photo for your profile pic - a pic of your piano or pet won't do, sorry.... Also, if you;d like to be an assistant event host for some of our meetup jazz jams, please email your phone # to Martha Esch, Organizer. Thanks!

I'm a jazz lover and a percussionist. About 5 years ago I made the switch from hand drums to drum set and I've finally found my instrument! During the past 3 years I've studied jazz and Latin drumming.
