    Hey all! Thought I'd share a new track that me and my section (Triple H Horns) recorded with bassist Melvin Lee Davis (Lee Ritenour / Chaka Khan), Oscar Seaton and Jeese Milliner. It's a pretty hip track so some of you here may appreciate and enjoy it! I recorded on my Yamaha Atelier YTS - 82Z...

    What's up, SOTW! Here are a couple new-ish videos from my jazz-funk fusion band, Progger. These are from a show we did earlier this year at our home base, One2One Bar in Austin, TX.

    Hey everyone! I did a little promo video for my friend Dom Palombi and his band. I've posted a bunch of videos of me playing in his band before and wanted to film this introduction for him to explain to people what his band is about. If you could check it out and let me know what you think...

    Hi, I played a Dukoff till it was really old and I sold it. It was an amazing mpc. Later I played a metal Berg Larsen Duckbill but I had entonation issues with my Yanagisawa 991 and I sold it. Later I owned a Law Buzzer with I liked very much but I dropped it accidentally to the floor and it...

    What's up, SOTW community! Got the third and final video of the series all done, I hope you dig it. This is definitely the most "jazzy" of all the tunes we've been putting out lately, but Carter (guitar) and Sean (keys) play some really beautiful stuff. Primarily I just hope you enjoy the tune...

    Hey ladies and gents! Here's the second of three videos I'm putting out into the YouTubeosphere this year from a recording session my band, Progger, did in Austin last December. This one is definitely on the stanky and/or sludgy side of things, and my buddies Paul Deemer (trombone) and Matt...

    Hello reader! My main genre of choice to play is funk, and I don't think my mouthpiece can do the job for the style I am interested in. I currently play a Jody Jazz HR, and I am looking for a different mouthpiece with completely different characteristics. I am in search of a metal mouthpiece...
