Over a 30 year career, I have supported and elevated the performances of: Al Foster, Eddie Henderson, George Coleman, Lee Konitz, Clifford Jordan, Harold Mabern, Eric Alexander, The Birdland Big Band, David DeJesus, Chris Potter, Eli Degibri, Adam Birnbaum, Peter Bernstein, Brian Blade, Jorge Rossy, Kevin Hays, Mike Moreno, Timothy Hill, Fleurine, Paula West, Jeff Williams, Bill Stewart, Toshiko Akiyoshi, Lew Tabakin, Walt Weiskopf, Lizz Wright, Joe Williams, and Pete Seeger.

I became an active educator and advocate before it was fashionable, teaching workshops around the world. I am currently a Professor at SUNY Purchase College, and The New School University, and ZOOM.

I was guest Professor of Kontrabaß and Ensemble at the Jazz Institut Berlin for the Summer 2019 Semester.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
