In other news...

(Yes, I decided to take down the previous post after being reminded it might not be wise considering my line of work.)

In other news, I dug up some old recordings of me performing during college.
For anyone who doesn't know, I have a Jazz Performance degree.

Heres a recording of Sonny Rollins' “Oleo“, featuring me (guitar), Dave Lown (sax), and a couple of other guys I can't remember.
Also, a rendition of Wayne Krantz's “Whippersnapper“.
Don't expect CD quality here, these were recorded during a recital in Kenton Hall at UNT.

Very nice playing!
Thanks for sharing these.

I was impressed with your funk/solo chops when I heard you back in the day with Citizen Lane at DaDa. There was a "public ass-biting" incident at that gig! I always wondered what happened to you. I guess you found out that coding pays better than a music

Was it a tough decision to give up music as a career? I'm curious because you were one of the better guitarists I ever heard come out of the UNT jazz program.

Anyway, I would love it if you could post more audio files of your jazz guitar playing.

Thanks again, -Sam
