"The DURGA really brings my bari to life!"


My Theo Wanne setup on my bari has become my gold standard by which I measure other horns and mouthpieces. It not only sounds good, but it feels great!


I play all of the saxophones, write music, have my own bands, travel, play music, and teach. I am currently the Director of Jazz Studies at West Virginia University and can be heard regularly in Pittsburgh, New York City, and Boston. I have a deep passion for jazz and traditional music but I also am known for playing some funk/rock music.

Q:What is your internal experience when you feel REALLY connected to the music?
A:When I feel really connected to the music, I am not thinking about the instrument at all. I think of shapes and breaths and intensity.
