I started playing congas in the military, while on assignment in South Korea in 1979. I played with several bands, performing a mix of R&B, Funk, Jazz standards, plus some original material. I co-composed, produced and arranged many of our shows. I have been blessed with the ability to compose and create musical arrangements for an entire band.
After leaving the military in the early 80s, my passion turned toward raising a family. After decades of raising children, my passion turned back to composing music.
I enjoyed some moderate success while living in Las Vegas, Nevada. Some local hip-hop and rap artists performed some of my compositions. In 2007, an instrumental track I composed called, “Kicking IT”, was used by “EXTRA, THE ENTERTAINMENT MAGAZINE”.
My first CD "SEDUCTION", is a combination of up-tempo smooth jazz compositions...dotted with mid-tempo and relaxing slower tracks.
My ambition is to become a producer for a major record label. I also dream of having a well known smooth jazz artist record and perform one of my compositions.
If you enjoy my music, please leave me comment on my comment page....hope you enjoy the selections from my CD "SEDUCTION".
