He has the uncanny ability to take 'a but of musical this' and 'a touch of musical that' and create a sound that is uniquely his own - A singular brand of pop tinged jazz that owes as much to Billy Joel and Paul McCartney as to Professor Longhair and Albert Ammons on hook laden love songs like 'A Little Bit Of Love.'
