About

Celebrated thirty years in the music field May 2020. I keep it simple, live in a small room, have no car, one small dog. Although I have had many rewards as a drummer and bandleader, it is an unending financial struggle. I was fortunate enough to be mentored by late John Coltrane drummer Elvin Jones and I feel it a duty to keep the music out there and pass along any knowledge I may have. I have taught privately for many years and also through the Guitar Center the last three. This last gives me great joy. I have collected the Oral Histories of Jazz artists over the years as a way to keep the legacy alive and vibrant. For most of my life I have also written poems and short stories as well as a recent novel. I do not ask for much from life, but do need help in continuing my endeavors...I dare say anyone who offers their assistance will not be disapponted.
Current Projects underway: various recordings especially Everlasting Belle (dedicated to late recording engineer George Belle), a coffeetable book documenting my time with Jazz Great Elvin Jones, the novel The Snake in the Grass, collections of poems and short stories, and the opportunity to continue teaching those who are seeking like me...
Thank you for your time and consideration
Love and Peace
