Jazz/Soul Pianist, Vocalist & Composer

New CD Set for Release April 22 (includes video promo)

 

"Deep Resonance," which is an unplugged-style collection of tunes, mostly original, that give the feeling of being in an intimate setting as I perform just for you ... well, that's the mood I was going for anyway :)  This project has been coming together for quite some time, but mainly due to my touring schedule I kept having to put it on the "back burner."  Tracking which consisted mostly of duos (with added percussion on a couple of tracks by Jonathon Peretz) began in early 2014 at Park West Studio in Brooklyn.
