    Location:
    Manhasset, NY (near NYC)
    Current Setup:
    My go-to axe is an Ibanez 5-String SR-405.

    I also have an upright, 2 Fender Jazz Bases (one Mexican Standard from the mid-90s and one Geddy Lee model), a Hofner and a Dean Fretless Edge, as well as quite a few non-basses.
    Favorite Genres:
    Jazz, Fusion, Jamband, Classical, Funk, Latin, Reggae, World, Classic Rock, Other Rock, R&B... etc.
    Gigs and Ensembles:
    I'm currently involved in: 2 jazz groups (small combo bebop / hard-bop standards & originals), a couple of classic rock & oldies cover bands, backing up some singer songwriters, an r&b / funk / pop originals group, a funk / disco / jamband... and am always looking for more work :)
    G.A.S. List:
    I would kill for a cheap Fodera... :3

    I'm also interested in an electric upright, a six-string, a better fretless bass, an active p-up / preamp system for a fender jazz bass (like EMG-J), a good pickup for my upright...
    Influences and Teachers:
    Wow, okay.

    Teachers: my first real bass teacher was Mike Frost, an amazingly talented student of Jaco's. At Berklee I had too many to list; Esperanza Spalding was probably my favorite.
