    Artist Comments

    My main instrument is the tenor sax, but I consider myself fortunate to play most of the saxophones, flute and piccolo. I find there are musical times when each instrument is distinctive in it's own way, and thats one of the beauties of being a "reed man". I've been fortunate to study and perform with some of the most dynamic artists in the business. It is a very humbling, and treasured experience.
