i met randy back in 1999 in tucson az. we started a band called dali’s trio which was a mix of gypsy kings and bela fleck in my mind. in reality it probably was nothing similar. the songs were earthy tunes with long instrumental improvisations. this really began my songwriting and improvisation mind set to which i carry this day. our relationship and music has ever been evolving. together we’ve self taught ourselves how to play: jazz, bossa nova, choro’s, gypsy jazz and transcribed hundreds of tunes that we’ve recorded. we’ve learned so much from our many projects and co-writing, producing through the years. this is a life long project.
