Born: May 28, 1948 Primary Instrument: Saxophone
As a jazz musician I have performed in the New England area, the San Francisco Bay Area, as well as in Mississippi. I’ve played with Mississippi musicians Eden Brent, John Horton, Knight Bruce, Raphael Semmes, Donnie Brown and many others. My major influences as a saxophonist have been Dexter Gordon, Charlie Rouse, Stan Getz, Thelonius Monk, John Coltrane and Gene Ammons. I have lectured on jazz and the lives and times of jazz musicians for both young people and adults.
