Free Lance

I’ve been involved in recording since 1967 when I did a session on trombone with an R&B band in St. Louis. Other groups/projects have included pop singer Michael McDonald, blues guitarist Bill Scholer, NPR Radio (an all-original soundtrack for a one-hour documentary, writing and performing on piano, trombone, and percussion.)

Other sessions include a double CD of poet Gary Snyder’s epic, “Mountains and Rivers without End,” and live concert performances with saxophonist Randy McKean of the Nevada County Composers Cooperative.
