JT recently signed a record deal with Bentley Records. They will be releasing his new jazz album in early 2021. From straight ahead swinging tunes to some toe tapping funky fusion jazz, the album is sure to turn some heads in the industry.
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 from 2011-2013.
For the last 3 decades, JT has been a gigging workhorse leading many bands including his jazz quartet and as a professional musician has performed with, shared the stage/billing or opened for many well renowned artists and groups in over 3000 performances.
JT is a Berklee College of Music graduate (magna cum laude honors) 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 200 students in the last 25 years.
