Jazz instrumentalists 

sought for combo


Jazz players at all levels are invited to join me

in a combo.


We would meet on a

regular basis to just jam. 

Playing in a combo is the best way to enjoy and learn more about jazz performance and it is good for one's being. The invitation is to players of all instruments.  A percussionist  is particularly welcome.


I look forward to hearing from you.
