John is a unique jazz guitarist influenced as much by pianists and horn players as he is by guitarists. His original take on harmony, chords and improvisation sets him apart.
He has taught internationally for over 40 years in every educational setting. His clinics are informal, hands-on and informative. In addition to music theory and guidelines for improvisation, John shares his professional experience with the business of music. John brings his quartet to the Sacramento Dante Club, featuring Kerry Kashiwagi on bass, Jack Stanfill on drums and Jeff Alkire on sax.
