Originally, I cut my blues teeth as a singer with the Panama Limited Jug Band (a country blues group which
came out on the Harvest label)...................so throughout my life the blues - country, chicago and modern - has always
colored my music.
I love the idea of fusion, and especially using both Latin American music and Reggae as a tool for blending in all
kinds of styles of music.
I play both piano and guitar - my favourite guitarists are Jimi Hendrix, T-Bone Walker, Buddy Guy and Joe Pass -
For piano I love Herbie Hancock, Bill Evans and Memphis Slim.
For vocals - Robert Johnson, Carly Simon, Buddy Guy, Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald.
All in all, I think that yes, I play, record and perform an individualized style of fusion with a strong blues bias.
