Tim Mayer! Jazz woodwind specialist & educator from Boston, Massachusetts

December 25, 2009

Latin/Latin Jazz

I have always found Latin music to have such great energy and life.  Since coming to Boston, I have been fortunate to play with so many great musicians, and to participate in some great recordings.  I have learned a lot, and continue to grow.  A lot of great friendships have also resulted from my involvement with this music.
