Its all about communication. If you communicate while you play, you are making good music. You can communicate a story through words; you can even transmit raw emotion directly to the souls of listeners from the stage.
I was born in Kansas, and moved to Arkansas at an early age. When I was exposed to straight-ahead jazz in college, the hook was set for life.
I have been extremely fortunate in my life, getting to play with the Temptations, the Four Tops, the Kings of R&B, Wayne Newton, Natalie Cole, John Faddis, Ann Hampton Calloway, and many others. I play with traveling shows passing through Arkansas, like The Rat Pack is Back, High School Musical: The Broadway Tour, Chicago, and more. I play in the Arkansas Repertory Theater pit orchestra, and in many local and regional bands, such as TwiceSax, the Real Band, the Overtones, and the Bathhouse Big Band.
I studied classical saxophone with Dr. Jackie Lamar at the University of Central Arkansas, and played in several ensembles there. My biggest education has come from playing live with and listening. I hope I have drawn influence from some of my favorite musicians such as John Coltrane, Chris Potter, Miles Davis, Coleman Hawkins, and too many others to even think about listing.

The Stardust Big Band continues to
attract dancers from states that border Arkansas since Stardust provides fantastic live dance music so often missing in area events.
Though Stardust performs for many weddings and special events their impetus is on providing a live dancing experience each month at the Arlington Hotel and Spa.
Admission is $8 but is free for students 18 years and younger.
Dancers from Memphis, St. Louis, Texarkana, Austin and Houston continue to frequent this monthly event to enjoy and practice their dance routines.
The evening’s entertainment promises as
much for viewing as dancing since area dance instructors bring their students to practice dancing in a live musical venue.
This powerhouse 17 piece big band, organized in 1982, is the only big band consistently performing in Arkansas. The popular TV show “Dancing With the Stars" would be hard pressed to compete with some of the professional dancers that attend this event!!!
As the cold winter lingers,
have no fear,
spring is coming
and as the weather gets hotter,
so does the music of the

America's Art Form Series
A very short bio on the Hot Springs Jazz Society:
January 1992 is the birthday of the Hot Springs Jazz Society, and the date of its first official membership meeting.
This organization was founded to perpetuate, preserve and promote the jazz music, an original American art form.
The mission is partially accomplished through a scholarship program that sends qualified music students to the summer jazz camp at the University of Arkansas -Monticello.
The mission is further accomplished by providing jazz music events in the Hot Springs area, most notably the free outdoor Jazz Fest concert held every September.
This year marked the 22nd Jazz Fest, which also provided music education seminars, workshops, lectures and a variety of jazz concerts.
The efforts of the Hot Springs Jazz Society have brought national recognition to our jazz events, resulting in increased tourism and nationally known artists requesting performance appearances at Jazz Fest.
The Hot Springs Jazz Society is a non-profit, volunteer organization dedicated to perpetuating, promoting and preserving Jazz Music, an original American art form. The Jazz Society is funded in part by the Arkansas Arts Council, Hot Springs Advertising and Promotion Commission, Arts on Tour, Weyerhaeuser Foundation and Elisabeth Wagner Foundation along with numerous other corporate and private sponsors.
