Introduction I was a successful trombonist in the 60's playing with some great bands and recording an album, Cuban Roots that is considered a Latin Jazz classic. I left the music business to earn a PhD in Philosophy. I started playing the flute in my early 30's and it quickly became the focus of my life. After achieving tenure and job security I decided to live my dream and become an active jazz musician. I have recorded 19 albums on flute since 1996. This blog tells the story.
Interests I'm a jazz flutist who plays world music and straight-ahead. I record with some of the greatest musicians in the world and am very proud of my recordings. My goal as a musician is to expand the contribution of the flute in jazz and by doing so contribute to jazz in general.
