Why a podcast?
Through my decades in the music business as a performer, composer, arranger, and/or educator I’ve accumulated a vast rolodex of the world’s leading musical innovators. From this pool of contacts, I came up with the idea of creating this podcast, Backstage at The Enharmonic, to get a candid look at what music may have inspired my guests in their formative years and who are some of the current artist that they are listening to, especially outside of their genre. The goal of this project is to dispel misconceptions about their tastes, to surprise listeners and fans, to entertain and take listeners to an unexpected point of resolution and to think differently about musical categorizations.

This picture exemplifies why I started this podcast, it is from a gig that I did a few years ago. Yes, a car caught on fire and exploded in the woods right behind my drumset. No one was injured. Everyday is an adventure!
