I have had the great fortune of playing on many recordings over the years.
Here are a few of my favorite tracks. I hope they are as enjoyable to listen to as they were to perform.
I recently recorded with a new local band called the GeoMetrics.
“The GeoMetrics – an Edmonton based trio with members Don Bradshaw(bass), Bill Damur, doubling guitar and flute, and Dean Pierno on drums.
Their music is best described as rhythmically and harmonically adventurous jazz/rock fusion, wholly original, with elements drawn from the European and North American flavours, as their recent C.D. attests. The jazz/fusion label doesn’t prevent this adventurous trio from musical exploration far from traditional sources, and the musical experience for Dean, Don, and Bill remains in the final analysis, an ongoing journey.”
These 3 tunes were composed by Bill Damur and arranged by the GeoMetrics.
All 3 tunes are registered with SOCAN
One Afternoon in the Gardens of Thera
Rollanda Lee and the Canadian Hot Stars (dixieland)
Dixieland music was my first introduction to jazz. It always makes people smile and that makes me smile

I played with Ian from 2004-2006. Great band. I learned a ton.

Reelin and Rockin

This is a demo recording of a rehearsal band called The Basie Project.
“Splanky” is one of my favorite Basie recordings ever!
Tyler was fourth runner up on Canadian Idol in 2003. This guy can sing.
I spent a year in Tucson, AZ in 2010/11 and the the privilege of recording a cd with this band. A great m ix of R&B, blues, Funk, Originals and some of the best players in town.

I recently recorded a demo with a new band called ‘Swing The Cat” with Joe Piccolo.
Here are some tracks from that recording.
