I can’t believe how fast this month is flying by. Last week we finished teaching at the college for the semester and I had a wonderful gig at the 55 Bar with vocalist Sandy Sasso, pianist Gladstone Trott and bassist Marcus McLaurine.  Now I’m turning my attention to my site Jazz Guitar Lessons. We’re growing and getting new members every day. If you’re serious about improving your jazz guitar skills, why not check it out?


Are you in New York City?  Here are a few gigs coming up:

Thursday, May 21st at the Garage
