I was born at a very early age to nice parents both much older and wiser than I...=D>
first off, i've loved music all of my known life. I grew up during the 40s and 50s, was an avid reader of Downbeat thoughout the 50s. Played drums, uke, guitar, piano, trumpet, souzaphone, and now mainly guitar (spanish classical). My 2 favorite genre are 50s r&b and jazz bop (ventura, getz, gillespi, mulligan, etc.), but really appreciate Italian Opera and other classical music of that period. I paint (surrealism), cook, love good cigars and scotch. I accepted Yeshua as my personal Messiah and have been walking with Him since 1968. Married with 2 sons and 2 daughters (all of whom are artists and musicians)...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ new news: finally back to the brass, after not blowing trumpet since 1960, I've purchased an etude b flat and got my lip back. so far so good and the blues are starting to flow again. dig it, what a groove! 'ts miracle...hoowah.(still diggin' my Corojos...=D>...)
