Representing the entire horn section of DNR is no small
task. It is certainly made easier when Gnorm turns up
my mic (so if you can't hear me please nudge him to do
so!). My sax career began when my older brother left
home and left his sax behind; I gladly gave up the
clarinet and got hooked on jazz.
Dexter Gordon, Wayne Shorter and of course John Coltrane
are my icons.
I listened intently during college and med
school and once I landed in NYC for medical residency,
continued studying jazz and playing with various groups
including the Boys Harbor Big Band in Harlem. After
establishing a career in Hematology/Oncology and cancer
research, I joined the Whittingham Cancer Center at
Norwalk Hospital and, soon after, DNR.
I am so grateful to be playing in the midst of such
extraordinary human beings and super talented musicians
as are in this band. We have a special connection with
our listeners and really want to make you happy. You
can tell by our smiles that we certainly are.
