JEN-gigs-Aloha!

January 20, 2019

Had a fantastic time at the 10th annual JEN Conference in Reno (911). Saw some fantastic clinics, friends, food and laughter. Matt Falker and I presented our clinic Custom Fit Your Standards and it was well received. I am playing in LA for the next part of the month, then off to Hawaii for some B3 Jazz with the Jocelyn Michelle Group.

What People Are Saying About Sammy...

"Your enthusiasm, excellent attitude, playing and teaching insights and ability, and friendly insanity are a huge boon for our camp. I watch your students when you are around and I know they love and respect you. The quality of your work with these kids is the best I have ever seen. I expect most of them to be back, and to play much better when they do." Dr Monty Cole - Director of Jazz Studies at Mercer University
