Have been playing piano since age of 8.Played first gig at age 9 on a children's radio show as accompanist for a little girl vocalist(same age). Later became tap dancer entertainer,etc. Was entertainment specialist in the U.S. Navy duringWW2. Played piano,organ & accordian professionally/had my own band and played solo piano in various night spots in the Rochester,NY area. until health problems forced retirement Also taught music during the post war years.I love jazz and Tommy Flanigan (sp ?) is one of my favorite pianists. I try to work out daily on my Steinway in my home music studio. I listen to online Pandora Radio/piano jazz at some part of each day.
In 1965, played some dates with the Glenn Miller band under direction of Ray McKinley. I play piano now for kicks.
