I call my music Jungle Jazz because it's a mixture of African, Latin and Caribbean grooves complimented by my American jazz roots swingin' hard, with my worldly funky upbringing accenting each song. This project will let you know I love to beat on things and create a communication within my music you can feel. MORNING SUN opens with a smooth beginning of the day taking you through a Desert Crossing to groovin' on a Wednesday Morning while you are Pushing Forward, with the energy of Salsa landing you in the Peaceful Streams of life. It's a Grooveness... a Malian Flight into the blue skies bringing you into your spiritual consciousness in the powerful time of 4AM landing you in the Rain Forest of possibilities. My heart pumps through each and every tune featuring many of my good friends who happen to be great versatile musicians. Winning 4 Grammys with Keb Mo and Dianne Reeves, Gold and Platinum records with Stevie, Sting and Kenny Loggins, spending my young years playing and touring with Miles and many other great artists and accumulating over 1,200 instruments has added to my musical influences and only makes me desire more strongly to share my music with the world. I hope you love and enjoy my musical project, and feel my Jungle Jazz as I help you bring up your MORNING SUN.
