Though the thrust of my work is as creative leader, I also engage in quality artistic collaborations. All projects listed below include my collaborative work on piano and/or keyboards, as composer or improviser. Please take some slow-time and listen to the work of these fascinating artists.
The Tova Kardonne Quartet showcases Tova's original contemporary jazz music.
Multi-instrumentalist and composer Mike Smith has formed The Mike Smith Company to perform his fun, brilliant and satisfyingly groovy pieces. Mike is a fellow All-Set! artist.
Klezfactor is led by Canadian saxophonist and clarinetist Mike Anklewicz who composes music fusing traditional klezmer with grooves from a multicultural world. I played on Klezfactor's first two albums.
Straight-down-the-lane jazz is still in my blood and the Toronto Jazz Orchestra was a great place to stretch out in the piano chair for three years. I played piano on their album "The Path".
Composing the piano ground layers for Alessandra Naccarato's spoken word pieces was a recent joy. I would love to do more of this sort of thing!
