I play all kinds of music from blues to jazz to rock to symphony, but have a special love for performing high-energy big band jazz in the "Buddy Rich style". I currently play soprano & tenor sax on live paying gigs, but am equally comfortable playing with a small pit orchestra or regional symphony, having spent 14 years playing double-reeds (bassoon, oboe) in several symphonies around the country.
