Instrumental music has the ability to paint pictures.

From whatever style or culture, I have always strived to find all the visuals in each piece of music, and unravel the mystery of how the artist was able to convey his imagery.

In my early childhood, my facinations were:

  • Moonbeams, by Bill Evans
  • Ahmad Jamal live at the Pershing Lounge
  • A Day In The Life, by Wes Montgomery
  • Quiet Village by Martin Denny

Currently, the foci of my musical styles are characterized by:

  • Jazz
  • Latin Jazz
  • Exotica
  • Cape Verdean

These are the genres that I have found myself most comfortable in and inspire me; I feel what I want to say is best recieved by the audience of those styles.

I see music as the attempt to capture the nonverbal elements of culture, emotion, and perception in the moment and render it as a portrait in sound with the goal of evoking sympathetic responses in the listener.

Each of my personal projects (see menu above) can be considered an exploration into the realm of artistic expression as described above.
