After touring and recording nationally and internationally for 3 decades, I was diagnosed with throat cancer in 2001.

The Jazz Network is exactly what the title suggests, a place where you get to mix and mingle with those who have not only an appreciation for Jazz but a forum to hear new up and coming artists as well.
