JT has recently released his new jazz album called "Duality" through Bentley Records. From straight ahead swing to some toe tapping funky jazz, this is JT's second album as a leader. 

His original music has been featured on Legends radio 100.3 FM in South Florida, WPKN in Connecticut on the Malcolm Dankner jazz show and the Jazzy103.com jazz show hosted by Captain Chris Hill.

JT has been a frequent guest on the Brooklyn Cafe TV show hosted by Freddy and Dawn which broadcasts from Boca Raton, FL. 

JT started his performing career in the late 1980's as a professional musician in the New York scene with regional east coast touring in the 90's and nationwide touring with the Bronx Wanderers for three years.

For the last three decades, JT has been a gigging workhorse leading many bands including his jazz quartet, and as a member of many amazing artists and groups in over 3000 performances.

JT is a Berklee College of Music graduate and studied with jazz greats like George Garzone, Gato Barbieri, Cameron Brown, Joe Lovano, Jeremy Wall, Dick Oatts, Dino Govoni, Jon Finn, Fred Lipsius, Mike Kelly and many others who have inspired JT to create his own dynamic style on Guitar, Tenor and Alto Saxophones, an uncommon doubling.

As a teacher, JT has taught over 300 students in the last 25 years. JT is writing new music for his next album release with Bentley Records coming soon.
