His latest songs meld country lyrics and harmonies with upbeat jazz tempos, piano riffs and horn backing. A guitar player at heart, CJ's unique and angular solos punctuate tales of love, America, success, and striving.

CJ has written and performed jazz/New Age instrumentals. Combining lush backgrounds, intricate piano work, and guitar rhythms, these compositions celebrate life in the Hawaiian islands. The work contains influences of George Winston, Joe Zawinul and Weather Report, Miles Davis, and Yanni.

On his CD, "My Secret World", CJ brought together a number of outstanding musicians for a studio work that featured hard rock, smooth pop, and instrumental jazz. The title track is reminiscent of Sade and KennyG.

CJ's philosophy? "Music is the last refuge of the truth". Whether crooning a country love song, exploring the subtle worlds of the piano, or rocking out, CJ always strives to make each composition more truthful than the last.
