A varied musical career has always included the broad category of jazz as a first love working with great jazz players such as Dennis DiBlasio, Richie Cole, Charles Fambrough, Steve Varner, Daryl Hall, Urbie Green, Mark Kramer, Arnie Lawrence, Barry Sames, Randy Reinhardt, Bobby "Lips" Levine, Nelson Hill, Lenny Argese, Bob Devos, Ron Kerber, Ron Mclure, Brian Trainor, John Bianculli and Glenn McClelland, to name a few
There are a few local groups that I worked with over the years that were (some still are) great bands with some really talented and reknown players.The amazing power trio, "Unguided Missle" that featured guitar phenom John Bushnell and great bassist Angel Resto. John is also in the "Maggie Hill Band" featuring Maggie of course, a great singer-songwriter, the band also features Jerry Steel on bass and the amazing Tom Reock on keys and vocals. The jazz/fusion ensemble"Stiff Stuff" featured Rod Brennan (Esq) on keys and compositions & the tastey Rob Paoletti on gutiars. "Otay, Otay" featured Carol Brooks on vocals, hard working blues gutiarist Billy Baltera & the versatile Jim Gilheany on bass, great band, great players.
Studio experience over the years has been demo work which includes sessions with Bittersweet (now Baillie & the Boys) with George Duke & Larry Coryell for the Musitronics project, various commercials and sound tracks for Sesame Street animators.
Earlier recordings include 2 albums on Polydor records with folk-rock singer Randy Burns out of New Haven, 3 albums on RCA/Windsong with the rock & roll band of Philly area fame, Johnny's Dance Band, AKA "JDB", an album with ChetBolins & a CD with singer/songwriter Michael Ferro.
