Sweet to get into melodies/
harmonies/rithm by myself;
performing songs, improvise and finding good sounds.
In the program that takes about one hour, I use the jazzbass and baritonebass that cover my soundimagination; love to move from jazz, groove/blues to countrymusic and soundscapes. Listen below to some of the stuff that I do;-) ('Monk's Mood')
If you want to book this program, it's suitable for concert, masterclass, workshop, vernissage or public exhibition, please contact me.’
