Musical Director for Katie Eagleson


I am the musical director for jazz cabaret singer, Katie Eagleson who happens to be my wife.  Most of the time I play piano for her but when we expand the band beyond a rhythm section I switch to saxophone.  I studied piano for a while with Tom Lawton, focusing on voicing, comping and accompaniment skills.  Katie and I started performing as a duo in 1990 and have been working on the project since then.  She has recorded four full length CDs and has done many live shows in the Philadelphia area and recently in Florida.  Working with Katie is an extremely rewarding experience.  Audiences love her and the musicians that join us, such as Madison Rast and Grant MacAvoy are first rate.  Although we do perform in many private communities, we also self-promote live shows, as well as appear in public venues.  If you would like more information please visit Katie’s website.

what's new

At the end of last year I went into the studio to record six of my big band arrangements.  We are now in the process of mixing the recordings.  I'll keep you posted on our progress.

I've been attending the BMI Jazz Composers Workshop since September and as a result I have some new compositions/arrangements for big band.  I'll make them available soon. 

I have a new arrangement for Big Band available on the Store page titled No More, No Less. This is a jazz ballad featuring alto saxophone.  Recently, I got a chance to hear it played by The Water Gap Jazz Orchestra.  They sounded great and I was pleased with the chart.  It is based on an assignment given to me by Phil Woods. Unfortunately, he never got to hear it. That's what happens when you wait 30 years to do your homework. No More, No Less is a tribute to the master, Phil Woods.
