The cello Blues

In Three paragraphs

I'm a classically trained, improvising cellist that started composing about 20 years ago. I have been gigging in the greater Washington DC area for over 30 years now, but now I am interested in having people hear some of my own tunes.

I strated playing cello at a young age, studying classical music, but was also getting my mind blown listening to Jimi Hendrix, Cream, John Coltrane, Charlie Parker,and Eric Dolphy, as well as Bach, Brahms, and Beethoven.it was a heady time to grow up listening to music....hopefully some of those influences will come out in my own stuff.

 

Currently, i have collaborated with Peter Fields, a great guitar player who also composes. Hopefully you will listen to our songs and get something out of them.Peace.
