J.T. has performed in several successful Cleveland based dance bands over the past 20 years. The JT3 is his first group exclusive to the jazz idiom, although that was always his first dream. Previous projects served him well as a primary source of income for years, as well as, offering him a developmental process for performance and business experience within the local Cleveland musical community, both corporate and the club scene. He has taught private lessons for years, and continues to take on a few students within the context of an active schedule.

J.T. has always felt a special affinity for the trio format within the realm of musical idioms. For him, the jazz trio allows a grander, more extensive openness to listen and relate with in a musical context than other vehicles.

He feels strongly that jazz is the most "spiritual" of all musical forms. And with that, he believes in the attempt to let the music and its spirit be guided by the unlimited possibilities within the Field of Pure Potentiality, rendering a pathway for risks taken subject to vulnerablity. This path allows and creates adventure in the chances each performance endures and lives for, yet the existence of these risks, as with love, affords the opportunity for art that is willing to attempt its creative regenerative force on a per gig/per composition basis.

J.T. believes a musician is defined by his "tone" and his sense of trying to be musically tasteful. While each is both individual and legitimate, they will always be guided by each artist's clarity of thought and colored by his ability to explore passion. This is sincerely and respectfully given testimony and honor to in the "Most Inspiring" introspective.

J.T.'s personal philosophy is simplified by saying.......................... The universe is essentially energy and the information that guides that energy. For him there is LOVE and CREATIVITY, at least when we are at our best. Really ....... what else is there?

"Expect the BEST! .................... 'cause your Attitude is everything."
