Well known locally and abroad as one of the premier jazz saxophonist on the Gulf Coast. He performs on Tenor, Alto, and Soprano Saxophones as well as piano and flute. Genres of music include Standards, Jazz Standards, Swing, Be-Bop, Cool Jazz and the Blues.
Playing professionally for over 50 years, the native Mobilian has backed artists such as Millie Jackson, Redd Foxx, and in concert with Ray Charles. He has recorded with renowned trombonist Fred Westley, the accomplished pianist Roy Merriwether and opened for Lou Rawles, Chemistry and Authur Prysock.
He has also performed for audiences in Baden and Zurich, Switzerland and Yelapa, Mexico. Early in his career he was a member of the United States Air Force Band performing in the United States and Europe. He is also an accomplished producer, arranger, composer, and music instructor (saxophone, flute, clarinet, and piano).
I initially coundn't decide on what songs to record, play, or sing.
So I ended up in the studio about a half dozen times locally - not to mention a ten-day stay in California recording and mixing.
I'm performing some songs on sax, singing some songs with the band, and on several I'm singing and accompanying myself on piano.
These are some of my favorite Christmas songs... and hopefully yours.
