Welcome to the Roaring Fork Jazz website.
I'm a musician in the Roaring Fork Valley, on the western slope of the Colorado Rockies, in the United States. This site functions as both my professional website, and as the home for the "Roaring Fork Jazz Workshop". Main links on top point to both functions, with "Philosophy" and "Practice" tending toward the workshop aspect, and the others tending toward my performance stuff.
Thanks for visiting. Take your shoes off. Get your axe out. Grab some water. Hang around awhile.
I've been extremely fortunate, the past few years, to count myself among the musicians with whom Josefina Méndez choses to perform. Josefina is a fine singer and musician, who's grasp of jazz and latin styles is comprehensive, and who's voice shimmers.
I've enjoyed performing with Dave Poulsen over the last 25 years or so in various jazz oriented groups. Elements is a fun mixture of jazz and funk and rock.
