Profile Information

Producer, engineer, bassist, writer
Company Name:
Java Jive Studio
About Me:
I've been recording music for more than 25 years and I'm the owner and operator of Java Jive Studio in Joelton, TN.

I've written articles and reviews for a bunch of magazines Recording Magazine, Pro Sound News, Audio Media, EQ, Mix, On Sound and Pro Audio Review and Bass Player Magazine. This kind of work has not only given me the opportunity to play with some really cool audio toys, but also to meet and write about some very nice people.

As a bassist, I've performed and recorded with singers well known, once known, and unknown; with bands playing all kinds of music; from show tunes to riff rock, from second line to polkas, and from blues to Beethoven. And I've performed with the All Bass Orchestra. Duke Ellington once said, "There are only two kinds of music, good music and the other kind." I've played both.

Open in LA

Posted on February 11, 2009 at 10:20am 0 Comments

Howdy, Folks!
It looks like I'll be back in LA from May 14 - 24, but I'm not completely booked while I'm there. Since I'll have time during the days (and some evenings) please keep me in mind should you hear of sessions or gigs. For that matter, keep me in mind if you know of a great coffee shop in Hollywood. Otherwise, I'll be sitting in the hotel bored to tears....

New Studio web site

Posted on March 5, 2008 at 3:25pm 5 Comments

Hi, folks!

I've just re-done my studio's webs site - after 5 years, it was past time. I'm not sure if it's as cool as the old one was, but I really needed to have some new audio samples and other stuff. With the new site, the gear list and the photos are more up to date (and there are at least pictures of the piano now).

If you get a minute and feel the urge, please check out and let me know if you have suggestions, criticisms or problems loading any of… Continue

Yes, not as much as I used to but that may be changing.  Life changes have given me the opportunity to look into playing more.  Gotta get my real kit refurbished from water damage but I have a Roland electronic kit that I have played for a while.  I do a country show every August that I have been the band leader for 12 years.  It lets me feel like a real musician again, at least for a month or so.  My day gig is working for Sharpie.  I am the project manager in the IT department.  If you ever need any Sharpies, let me know!  Talk to you soon.

I am with Andy - always appreciate the call to play with you and Vickie and the talented gang you always assemble

Thanks Dave. The feeling is mutual. I enjoyed it a heap. It was fun to play with you again, also. I often play songs even better the second time I play them!!!

Perhaps we'll get a chance and everyone on this social mecca will come to see us next time! Give my best to Carolyn. She sounded great too.
