about

Suite Abyssinia is a compilation of the indigenous sounds I’ve heard in Ethiopia for the last seven years fused with American jazz. Being in the land of first recorded human life, there is a spiritual aspect to the music that comes from the soul, as most of my improvisation was and is usually a conversation with my Creator.
