As a freelance woodwind performer I've played in jazz, rock, funk, soul, and R&B ensembles, big bands, and theatre orchestras. I've also played on dozens of CDs and soundtracks, and written commercial music for radio and TV. I play all of the saxophones, clarinets, flutes, oboe, english horn, and wind synthesizer.  Variety is the spice of life! Here are some recordings that were made using a mix of these instruments.
