In the 80's I got a fair amount of session and sideline work. I worked in an area of the business dealing with source music cues.
In the 90's I found steady long-term solo piano work in hotels. In addition, I did and continue to do lots of private affairs.
Like most muicians I have had to wear many hats to survive and I believe I bring this experience to recording projects.
What I really like about recording solo piano is the explorative possibilities I'm offered.
Also, I can be very spontaneous, and that's when I do my best work.
In my opinion this CD "Blame It On My Youth", represents the best which I'm capable at this time, at least until the next project.
I have been influenced by many artists. Some that come to mind are Bill Evans, Red Garland, Ellis Larkins and of course Bill Gidney. I believe these influences come through.
