His distinctive avant-garde jazz, funk, and soul stylings attract fellow musicians and the jazz community to his live appearances, especially at the Williamsburg Music Center, which he founded 41 years ago. The only black-owned jazz club in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, WMC is a musical laboratory and club that fosters young artists and hosts popular Friday and Saturday night jam sessions.
