My home is in Los Angeles. I am a band leader or freelance as a side man playing acoustic and electric guitars and singing in English, Portuguese and Cape Verdean Creole. My specialty is in Jazz and Brazilian music but have worked extensively in many idioms; Blues, R&B, African, Latin, pop, rock and many other world music styles.
I also compose, perform, arrange and record my own original music for many projects including with The Mitchell Long Group, Cabo Verde Cretcheu, Cafe Atlantico, Tropics and as a solo act. My demo MP3'S or CD's are available in all styles and have finished a EP with "Tropics" to be released soon. You can listen to a variety of samples of my work here on the website or contact me for more.
I am available for concert performances, studio, arranging, producing or any private, corporate and wedding event. I am prepared to work solo, duo, trio, quartet to quintet in all styles. I have 30 years experience working for all kinds of events with my small to large
