Living in NYC has allowed me to continue a rich musical education as I learn on the job in multiple genres.

Years with The Cotton Club All-Stars inculcated me into playing swing for dancers.

I learned to play Cuban son from José Luis Martínez, one of the founding members of Cuba’s iconic Los Van Van.
