My teachers/mentors include Luther Hughes, Charlie Haden, Dr. Greg Woll,
Brent Pierce, and Dr. Lou
Reich. I have performed with Maynard Ferguson, the California Avante-Garde
Ensemble, the Johnny
Blas Latin Jazz Band, Liparis Nervosa,...
The first jazz record I bought was a Verve compilation of 10 LPs! I saved for more than six months and gave it to myself as a
Christmas present. I was about 18 years old. Since then, my love for jazz has taken me to program the only jazz radio station in
Mexico City, Horizonte 107.9 FM.
