On the record...
Joe Collado - Latin Percussion
Joe Collado is a virtuoso conguero and timbalist who frequently toured internationally with big salsa acts. I'm blessed to be able to say Joe has been a fixture in my music since the 1990s. He's a celebrated composer in his own write as well as having been named Percussionist of the Year here in Miami - and that is no small honor!
Joe is an expert in traditional Caribbean style rhythms and you'll hear his conga, timbales and other Latin percussion instruments throughout my material.

"Mojo" Ike Woods - Guitar
The “Legendary Mojo” Ike Woods is a sought-after blues man who regularly tours Florida with his talented wife Val in the Ike & Val RnB Review. I'm blessed to have worked with them for several years here in Miami including my credit as keyboardist on the album pictured.
From their bio: "Ike began his musical journey at the tender age of six years when he took his first guitar lesson from his dad. He was quickly recognized as a child prodigy who went on to excel as a musician during his school years. At the age of seventeen Ike auditioned for Jazz greats Nat Adderly and Curtis Fuller."

Jesse Jones Jr. - Saxophones, Flute and Vocals
I've been blessed to work with many great artists over the years and one of the greatest is the legendary Jesse Jones Jr.
"Funk Mambo Remix" is a piece on which Jesse and I collaborated - in fact we produced an album on a new sound we called "Scat Hop" 🙂 which, really, is Jesse's style and invention in terms of his unique approach to recording vocal improvisations along with his fiery brand of saxophone playing.
