a native of Mt. Vernon, NY began his musical journey at the tender
age of 5 at which while growing up experimented with an assortment
of instruments including acoustic and electric bass, violin, piano,
French horn and trumpet. Of all the instruments the saxophone was
his true calling.
Horning his talents
throughout his formative years, practicing and devoting his time to
shaping and mastering his technical skills and self discipline he
ventured out and played at various functions and more to the point
developed a understanding of the unique and relationship between the
musician and audience.
The summer of 1993 saw Mike
made his debut performance at the well-known New York City
jazz & R&B spot, Wilson's.
Invited there by a friend who was playing keyboards with the house
band, Mike literally walked on stage and, much to the surprise of
the band leader, began to blow before anyone asked him to sit in.
The looks of bewilderment quickly turned to smiles and the rest, as
they say, is history.
Mike has been a regular there
ever since, performing with such artists as Babyface,
Boyz II Men,
Unfortunately no track
listings have been given on the this his debut set but as soon as
