Bass Player
Decades of dead strings and hot lights on stage. BA in Music Composition from Pomona College avoiding Viet Nam. Cut my baby teeth on Motown, R&B, learned to chew with Funk (ended with G. Clinton). Played professionally after college, traveled the US and Pacific Rim. Did the Vegas-Reno-Tahoe circuit, worked with Johnny Mathis, Trini Lopez for years (seemed like decades then) and that traveling experience made me the road warrior for small record labels that put me out on the fair ground circuit with new acts. Have played large and small venues. Too old for the funk now, it's practice gone to a younger generation with a different sound, and I can't play another cover from the 70-80's without serious reason. Exploring jazz for the last decade which introduced a new book(s) and a appreciation for the active listening required to build the context so vital to the groove in this elegant music form. Play upright, and 4 string mostly although I've owned 5 and 6 string basses.
