He has appeared with his own ensembles on radio and television broadcasts, and at a number of distinguished performance spaces and live-stream platforms. His theme music was used for the syndicated Native American cable TV show “Four Winds”. His groundbreaking use of ‘wah-wah’ pedal flute on his song “Look What You Done to Me”, recorded by singer Sheila Skipworth, was used in the major feature film “Something New” starring acclaimed actress Sanae Latham. His recording “Eleven Fifty Nine” was featured in the PBS documentary “July ‘64” by award winning film maker Carvin Eison. A native of Buffalo NY and longtime resident of the Washington DC Metropolitan area, his latest recording on the Rahmat Shabazz label is “Blues For Martyrs”.
