On Friday, November 10th I received notification that Buckwheat Zydeco Jr & The Ils Sont Partis Band received a Grammy Nomination; making me a Grammy Nominated Saxophonist !!!!! PLEASE check out our new CD named " New Begginings".  It's streaming on several music platforms; to include Amazon Music and Spotify. 

My "Sound" and product as an artist isn't defined by screaming altissimo notes, wicked arpeggios, or worrying about what the other guy is doing, but by me pouring every ounce of my soul into that moment through the sax.....
