I compose, arrange, play guitars, bass, keyboards, rap, sing.. I just do my thing.. I played in the well known SF bay area fusion band CLOUDS in the 70s.. and before the days of all this bling I spent 2 years in the late 70s with THE DAVID LA FLAMME BAND touring the states.. sex drugs rock and roll.. had it all.. EVERYTHING.. but I wouldn't trade for what I got now.. my own way.. my own music.. my own thing..

an award winning composer of chamber music with university honors and published and recorded compositions, I am a jazz musician.. I've played with, among others, woody shaw, jon hendricks, julian priester and mike nock.. I'm no longer a classic cover tune or mainstream jazz artist, rather a jazz musician who believes in world music as trane did.. seeking to blend many genres into a fresh and innovative style of jazz..

after many years on the axe I've finally done a 2nd CD showing my style.. RAPSTER GUITARS IT.. 2.. 12 original songs and collabs featuring syntopia, margot du bois and TLT50.. order here direct:

all you guitar lovers should buy these 2 CDs from one of the most innovative guitarists on the net..
no tired "licks" here.. :-)

thanks for your interest in my music :-)

Why this name?
what band? I'm alone now :-)
Do you play live?
gigging around switzerland is like trying to find
a drink at AA, but still sometimes I get to play
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
the net, I bet, is the future of music
we should use it, but not abuse it..

Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
