I've worked with an array of artists including: Kenny Burrell, Norman Connors, Phyllis Hyman, Betty Carter, Nat Adderley, Woody Shaw, Angela Bofill, Noel Pointer, Cassandra Wilson, Marlena Shaw, Gwen Guthrie, Sadao Watanabe, Terumasa Hino,Toninho Horta, Kenny Davis, Kevin Eubanks, and Avery Sharpe.
