My love affair with the guitar started in the early 60's, with the folk music craze. But when I got to college, two things happened -- I heard my first Wes Montgomery record, and I met a guy who had just traded in his accordion for a Hammond B-3. We spent the rest of our college years trying to play jazz on club dates, and one great night had the chance to open for the great Jimmy Smith. After college and law school, I 'took the day job', but still played at home and decided to study with a teacher, since up to that point I had played by ear. I started with Ted Makler in NYC for a brief time, followed by Joe Carter (a great player who focuses on Brazilian music) for many years. About 15 years ago, I ended up playing with the great Bucky Pizzarelli at a guitar workshop, and have since had the privilege of learning from him. More recently, Dave Stryker has also been sharing his vast jazz savvy with me. Playing out at jam sessions gave me the opportunity to meet Don Williams, who in turn introduce me to Richie McCrae. With them, I finally have the opportunity to pursue that jazz Holy Grail -- the fat sound of a Gibson hollowbody with an organ trio, a goal I've been chasing ever since I first heard Wes play!
