Hi All.
It’s April showers and I’m playing lots of excellent gigs in different locations.  It’s a fun time for me.

Featured Gig:  I’m loving playing the “Art of the Duo” concerts at Angelicas in Redwood City.  They have been a huge success.  Thank you to Sandra MarloweTammi Brown and Cathy Segal-Garcia for playing great shows.

Our fourth presentation at Angelicas is Wednesday, April 25 and will feature one of SF’s best jazz vocalists, Kay Kostopoulos.  Kay plays with the best Bay Area jazz musicians.   This will be a night of musical improvisation and creativity and FUN.  Hope you can come.  Tickets are FREE if ordered online at Angelicas website ($10 at the door).  Make your reservations early.

May 2:  Mary Jenson
May 23:  Daria


I’m looking forward to playing the grand piano at the elegant Cetrella in Los Gatos this year (TBA);  playing solo at Merrill Gardens; at the stately San Jose Country Club.  I’m playing solo at Dominican Oaks and Merrill Gardens.  I also play for the Sundays  at at Westhope Presbyterian Church in Saratoga.  Come here often to check out newly added gigs.  (See the listings below for more information.)

We have updated and revamped the JazzSkills for Piano website. Check it out.  We are now offering a brand new introductory offer.
