Performances for Any Setting
Whether onstage at your jazz festival, in your busy restaurant, or in your living room, I will play for your guests with heart, swing, intelligence and creativity. It’s best if there is a tuned acoustic piano or a digital piano on site, but I can also bring my own trusty digital piano. I’m happy to play and sing or just play solo piano from my large repertoire of jazz tunes (Thelonious Monk, Duke Ellington, Charlie Parker, Bill Evans, etc.), bossa novas (Antonio Carlos Jobim), the American Songbook (George Gerswhin, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Hoagy Carmichael, etc.), modern jazz (Pat Metheny, Keith Jarrett, etc.) and even some 60s pop (Burt Bacharach, Joni Mitchell, Beatles).
Solo or Combo
I can also add an acoustic bass player or sax player to make a duo. Or you can decide you want to have bass and drums for a classic jazz trio, with my own arrangements. Or you can have it all with a quartet! You can hear tracks from some of my CDs with my San Francisco Bay Area groups as well as recent Philadelphia studio recordings on my Listen page
I live in the Rittenhouse Square neighborhood of Philadelphia since 2018. Nothing would make me happier than to walk to your house, sit at your piano and play for your occasion. Perhaps you want to give your friends an opportunity to sing along. A teacher at heart, I will encourage them!
