ABOUT

I am currently looking for people who want to play fusion. I'm interested in the music from people like Chick Corea, David Benoit, David Sanborn, John Scofield, Joyce Cooling, Lee Ritenour, Marcus Miller, Stanley Clarke, etc. I also want to do tunes that are simply fun. And it has to be challenging.
