As a freelance musician , I have performed on stages in clubs, casinos and cruise ships all over the world for over 35 years. I also have spent countless hours in the studio as a musician, arranger, mixer, consultant and producer.
My degree is in Studio Music and Jazz from the University of Tennessee (1985) . I studied under Jerry Coker, Bill Scarlett and Don Hough.
I am available as a sax player on tenor, alto, bari or soprano. I can also double on flute, clarinet, keyboards, electric bass. and vocals. I currently work with a dozen bands in the Austin area , playing all styles of music. I am available for live or studio work. I am also setup for remote (long distance) recording. I would just need a 2 channel mixed MP3 or Wav emailed or 'drop boxed' to me.
Unison Saxophones are returning to the US. I have been playing these instruments for the last 6 years. They sound fantastic! You can hear them in all of my recent recording projects and various videos that pop up from live gigs. For the past 4 years they have only been available in Japan and China. As of today I will be handling all affairs related to Unison Saxophones in the US. Please contact me directly if you are interested in purchasing a S400 Tenor Sax, S300MKII Alto Sax or "The Phoenix" Soprano Sax. Also contact me if you are interested in distributing these great instruments through your teaching studio.

Jazz Apps Mobile is a small company that I formed with two programmer friends of mine. Our goal is to bring jazz education into the mobile age. We currently have seven apps in the Apple and Android app stores. Five core apps cover the entire language of jazz improvisation and theory. Each of these apps contain detailed explanation of the theory behind all of the concepts involved as well as audio examples, exercises and play-a-longs in all keys. Play alongs loop endlessly and tempos are adjustable. The apps are also customizable to set to any instrument transposition, treble or bass clef. Here are the links to the apps in the Apple App Store-
