This is my current active performing group. It consists of four musicians: myself on sax plus bassist Tom Hamasu, drummer 'Slam', and our newest member, guitarist Eric Kogan. If the occasion demands, the group can be easily expanded to a quintet or more.


We play a variety of jazz styles, ranging from classic to contemporary. Our repertoire runs the gamut, from the standards of the Great American Songbook, through modern jazz standards, and the cream of contemporary pop tunes.

Our current performance "home", Pip's on La Brea, has reopened after over a year closed due to the covid-19 pandemic. We are once again holding forth every Saturday night, on the newly dedicated Barbara Morrison Stage, from 7:00 to 10:00 PM. Click on the Pip's logo to check out their website for more information.
