Some arcane statistics and philosophical musings

Born November 18, 1937, in New York City of German and Scottish heritage. Raised as a teen in Miami , Florida. An Edison High graduate attended University of Miami on a full music scholarship. Fled to California encouraged by parents who funded a one-way bus ticket! Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Reno, Lake Tahoe, Carmel Valley, Orlando, Tampa and most recently Monterey, Ca. have all been residences at various times.

Touring, teaching and performing have taken me all over the globe so I guess the wanderlust bug is firmly entrenched. I enjoy making new friends and finding good restaurants in far off locales as well as bringing the gospel of swinging Jazz to as many people as possible.

I believe music definitely has therapeutic value and encourage everyone to take it up if only as a hobby. 'Tis a rewarding challenge at any age. Lotsa fun, makes you feel good, makes you move, can be done alone (as an alternative to other personal pursuits) and it is universal to all cultures on this planet !!
