I asked 8-Bit Music Theory, David Bennett Piano, David Bruce Composer, Adam Neely, 12Tone, Signals Music Studio, June Lee, Rick Beato, Nahre Sol, Ben Levin, Justice Cow, and Simon Fransman (all of which have been extremely helpful friends to me along the way) to help me out with this celebration of reaching 200,000 subscribers on YouTube!
I perform as often as I can all around LA and Orange Counties. Most often, I am playing solo piano and singing, but I also perform with my quartet regularly.
Some of my favorite local collaborators are Mike Scott, Shane Savala, Bruce Lett, Lyman Medieros, Steve Cotter, Kendall Kay, and I could go on and on.
I love to play and you can always find my gig dates on the “GIGS” tab of this site.
Live jazz is back! My quartet and I got to open a brand new club in San Diego, last weekend and we had a blast! Visit The Jazz Lounge if you get a chance and don't forget that you can hear all of the tunes we play on my albums (available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and YouTube)

I've loved this song for a long time. About a year ago, I had the idea while I was driving to do the song with a 6/8 Afro Cuban-influenced feel. I recently decided to finish arranging it and record it. I play piano, guitar, and sing and I also did all the mixing and mastering on my own this time which is something I'm getting more and more comfortable with. I wouldn't mind some constructive criticism on that front if you have some. I'd like to dedicated this to my brother-in-law who IS a lineman, my sister and their girls.
Another extended practice (I have a whole playlist if you're interested) session video for you! I use a backing track from the iReal Pro app (this time with "Rhodes 2", accoustic bass and very little reverb - and try to develop my ideas as I play 25 choruses! I hope you enjoy it!
