I have been in the music industry for roughly 40 years as a pianist, keyboardist, composer, arranger and producer. My main focus has been Jazz but I have worked in other contemporary genres such as Soundtracks,R&B,Pop,Indie-Soul and Hip Hop. I have worked with such artists as Woody Shaw, Kenny Burrell, Norman Connors, Phyllis Hyman, Toninho Horta, Jean Carn, Nat Adderley, Grady Tate, Kurtis Blow, Will Downing, Betty Carter, Angela Bofill, Wallace Roney, Omar Hakim, Victor Bailey, Will Calhoun, Sadao Watanabe, Dave Valentin, Earl Klugh, Carmen Lundy, Kevin Mahogany and Cassandra Wilson. My signature arrangements include "Betcha By Golly Wow" and "The Answer is You" for Phyllis Hyman and "The Lady in My Life" for guitarist Stanley Jordan. My CD "Remember Their Innocence" received an NAACP Image Award nomination in 2006 in the Best Jazz Album category.
