I am primarily a jazz composer. An exceptionally broad range of styles are found in my music including tango, blues, samba, fusion, ragtime, contemporary classical, and back to American roots music. A quirky humor is found in much of my music. This enables my work, even my avant-garde pieces, to be accessible.
Listed in International Who's Who in Music.
