My first exposure to jazz was as a young child, when my parents played Ella Fitzgerald Sings The Gershwin Songbook, Nat King Cole’s Love Is The Thing, George Shearing, Frank Sinatra, and Sergio Mendes albums on the record player. Vinyl was all we had in those days.
The first jazz record I bought was Quintessence by Bill Evans. My piano-playing great-grandmother was a published songwriter, my grandpa played piano with a wonderful style, and my dad still plays piano so beautifully. I love playing jazz, it’s fun!
I hope you enjoy my debut CD, "Sandbar." It is a compilation of original jazz songs and instrumental compositions from crisp hard bop to pensive piano solo with breezy Brazilian bossa nova, and smooth jazz. Read the review of "Sandbar" on allaboutjazz.com.
Hope my vocals and pianistic stylings bring you a good helping of joy!
