.I have played harmonica on works by and with.. Andrew Lloyd Weber.,Spike Lee,Marvin Hamlisch . Recorded background on many PBS specials and quite a few jingles over the last 20 years.I have toured with Broadway Musicals as well as having worked on Broadway in shows.
If you are looking for an extremely seasoned and very versatile player give me a call.I am easy to get along with and I have very good ears.
All during the 70's I worked for Hohner Harmonicas ,as a repairman and also a clinician, in Long Island, NY and Richmond,Virginia.
From the 80's and up I had been working with Huang Harmonicas Inc.
1985 brought me back to NY and eventually into subbing on Broadway for my friend Rob Paparozzi.
This helped immensely with acquiring jingle work and other referrals.
To the point: I am very fluid in many styles of music...Jazz,Blues,(Acoustic and Electric),folk and country.
I read music which ,along with proficiency on my instrument,allows me to work on Broadway and other projects that have scored music as well as just improvised.I have a strong track record.I have been fortunate to play on quite a few CD's and albums of extremely talented singers and songwriters such as Bill Edwards,Sonya Heller,James O'malley ,Vicki Blankensmith and Martha Trachtenberg and her husband Tom Griffith. These CD's are really well crafted and contain great songs ...
I want to mention a few names of musicians who, through the years, have been kind enough to refer me for various musical projects.
Rob Paparozzi( Who helped opened the door for me)
Scott Kuney, Kevin Kuhn,Ted Sperling,Michael Keller, Jeff Ganz,John Miller, Jill Diamond,Ellen Weiss, Phil Granger,Hui Cox, and Michael Starobin and all those unknown musicians who have referred me for projects and work.
