What is your association with Jazz music in the Detroit area?

I have played informally with different groups over the years in both the Detroit area as well as Toronto, Ontario.

Are you a Jazz enthusiast, listener, promoter, musician?

I am both an enthusiast as well as a jazz bassist and have been playing jazz on and off for about 40 years.


Jazz has always been a part of my life, even before my father took me to see Supersax, Buddy Rich, and others at Clarenceville High School as a child, our house was filled with the music of Oscar Petersen, Maynard Ferguson, and so many music legends.
