Have you ever had a previous career that turned into a hobby, that comes back to grab you now and then? Well I have – and it’s the music industry – as a performer, manager, and educator. Some people call me a Renaissance man, some say I’m odd, while others think one or the other is not true. If you’re curious about my alter ego that may surface from time to time – almost a Jekyll and Hyde scenario, go to:  There are videos, recordings, photos, and descriptions of a sorted-career.  I have performed with and/or managed Grammy and Juno Award winning and multi-platinum selling artists.  I have also worked directly with Academy, Golden Globe, and Emmy Award winning/nominated actors, actresses, directors, and producers.

As an example, I performed and recorded with The University of North Texas 2 O’Clock Lab Band’s album; our CD “The Transparent Two,” won the Down Beat Magazine Student Music Award for Jazz Big Band in 1993 (I’m a bass trombone player). IMG_0009

Here is the album (each track requires 15 seconds to load):

Limehouse blues

The fugue

I’ll get along without you very well

What was

What is this thing called love

Time for a change

The poet

Que passa bossa

On green dolphin street

Mr Fonebone

Give and take

Falling in love with love

Battle Royal
