Welcome to my new and improved Website! I hope to be a lot more interactive with everyone now. My old site wasn’t able to be viewed on Iphones and Ipads etc, so this is the new lean and mean site. We are still adding to it everyday, so keep checking in. I will be updating my news every few days, and letting you know about my upcoming gigs, and goings on. This is the best place to order signed CD’s, Books, and DVD’s directly from me, with no middle-man. Hope you will check back here often and keep in touch. Look forward to seeing you at the next gig, but until then below is a recent video….
Hello and welcome to my new website….we’re still working on it so come back and visit. I’m playing this weekend in Jakarta Indonesia with The Carl Allen/Rodney Whitaker Band at the Java Jazz Festival. 25 hours and 3 flights to get here (12 hours ahead)….one of the great things about playing music is the chance to visit parts of the world you would never otherwise see. Also got to hang out with one of my musical heroes Ron Carter at lunch yesterday….he’s such a huge part of music the last 50 years – a living legend in my eyes. Looking forward to hearing: Herbie Hancock, Pat Metheny, Bobby McFerrin, Al Jarreau, George Duke, David Sanborn, and Stevie Wonder! Till next time….peace DS
Hope all is well with you. I’ve been keeping very busy lately. Our gig at Cecils last weekend was great and a nice way to send off all the many good nights we’ve had there. This club will be missed…. Thanks to all of you who came out. I’m getting ready to go to Jakarta(!) with the Carl Allen/Rodney Whitaker group. I’ve also been teaching privately and at Montclair State Univ, and at Newark Art’s High through the Monk Institute. Also busy producing and arranging vocalist Rondi Charleston’s new CD….till next time keep swingin
Hello friends…..tonight I’ll be playing my last gig at Cecils. The club will close the end of this month unfortunately. This place has been a big part of my music for the last 9 years. I started my organ trio with Jared Gold and Tony Reedus back when the club opened. I want to thank Cecil and Adreena Brooks for keeping the music alive for the musicians and fans all these years. I want to especially thank all of you who came out and supported my gigs there….hope to see you again soon!
