Born: March 4, 1946 Primary Instrument: Clarinet
I am the Artistic Director for the Salt Lake City International Jazz Festival. As a jazz musician, (clarinet, alto sax, flute, piccolo) I have performed on many jazz festivals to include the Park City Jazz Festival, Snowbird Blues & Jazz Festival, Sun Valley Swingin' Jamboree, and twice in Italy at the Umbria Jazz Festival. I am also the director of the Salt Lake City Jazz Orchestra. We have backed many jazz greats like Eddie Daniels, Phil Woods, Gary Foster, Jack Jones, Nancy Wilson and dozens more. I go out with everything from a duo to a 17 piece big band. As clarinetist with The Great Basin Street Band, a first class trad or dixieland band, I also handle their bookings and business issues.
