The Old Ford Jazz Club Pubcast is launched!


Keeping busy is part of the situation. Besides composing, playing, and fathering I have carved out a little time to create a pubcast to share some wonderful things happening in London.

Congratulations to two great pianist!

And yes, I did work while I was in Bali!


I was very fortunate to play with some talented musicians, Toby Senior Vega and Helmy Agustrian in Bali. For the Tokyo trip, Tetsuya Mashine and Tomo Yamada provided the foundation. It was great to play with different rhythm sections but very challenging also. Time constraints and working with top call musicians is hard to have everyone at the same place at the same time. I am very fortunate to know and play with these guys.

Here is an article from the Jakarta Post about my concert in Bali.


Back In London


I can feel autumn in the air and its good to be back here. It's nice to be riding my bicycle again and using public transport. The three P's that make life easier here in London are: Parks, Pubs and Public transport. If you have been here or visited, I think you get the jest of what I mean. I guess that makes up for the grey and rainy weather.

I have a couple of cool gigs to announce for September at Nomad Jazz venue. This Thursday and the following Thursday. I will be playing some of my originals and some funky Latin stuff with the Cabrones Buenos. When we get together its always fun and enjoyable.

Nomad is the best known unknown place on old street. 

Also I haven't written about my trip out in Asia. I will get to that soon as it was a wonderful experience meeting old and new friends and playing with some great musicians. :)
