Musician Friends

Tomas Svoboda-Composer

Czech-American contemporary classical composer, Tomas Svoboda.  I have had the great good fortune to study composition with Tomas.  His music catalog contains well over 200 pieces.  His site has lots of audio and score samples.

The Official Paul McCandless Website

The great multi-reed player.  Paul played on my CD, "Passages", along with Art Lande and Chris Lee.  Paul is not only a brilliant technician on his instrument, he is also a fluent improvisor on the even the most challenging material. Great fun playing with him.

The Official Oregon Website
The groundbreaking chamber jazz group.
Art Lande Discography
Art is one of the greatest improvising pianists around and there are some great recordings listed here.
Chris Lee & Colleen O'Brien
Chris played drums on my CD, Passages. He and Colleen O'Brian play some really interesting music, very beautiful.

Nancy King is the best jazz scat singer alive today, a deep and beautiful jazz musician and one of my dearest friends.
Elvis Schoenberg's Orchestra Surreal
My friend and fellow composer Ross Wright a.k.a. Elvis Schoenberg from the West Coast Composers Forum. Check these guys out... very creative and entertaining. You might say Zappa meets Firesign Theater.
