Music

Pop, Rock and Jazz

I've played guitar since I was 13 years old. My primary musical influences are The Beatles, Queen, The Who, Jimi Hendrix, Frank Zappa, Motown, Cole Porter, Rogers & Hart, Bill Evans, Wes Montgomery, Miles Davis, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald and Charlie Parker.

I am a huge fan of The Beatles. John Lennon and Paul McCartney were masters of the 2-3 minute composition. Like Cole Porter and Rogers & Hart before them, I believe Lennon/McCartney songs will stand the test of time, both musically and lyrically.

Check out these great live performances by some of my favorite bands and musicians:

Beatles- Live NME - 1964
Bill Evans - My Foolish Heart - 1965
Bill Evans - Waltz For Debby - 1965
Miles Davis - Flamenco Sketches - 1959
Miles Davis - So What - 1958
Wes Montgomery - Full House - 1965
