Bassist, born July 17, 1947 in Mexico City. Founder of the band [a=Koinonia].

Received his earliest musical training from his father, a guitarist and composer. His first recording was at age 10 as part of a "rock and roll" group called [a=Los Traviesos]. After performing in Mexico through his teen years as both a musician and an actor, he moved to Boston where he earned a Bachelor of Music degree in Composition from the Berklee School of Music in 1972. During that time he recorded with faculty member, vibraphonist [a=Gary Burton]. He traveled with [a=Johnny Mathis], [a=Michel Legrand], and [a=Henry Mancini] and moved to Los Angeles in 1976 to begin a very diverse and fruitful studio recording career.

He has performed and recorded with many jazz artists including [a=George Benson], [a=Larry Carlton], [url=http://www.discogs.com/artist/Crusaders%2C+The]The Crusaders[/url], [a=Ella Fitzgerald], [a=Dave Grusin], [a=Herbie Hancock], [a=Freddie Hubbard], [a=Al Jarreau], [a=John Klemmer], [url=http://www.discogs.com/artist/Manhattan+Transfer%2C+The]Manhattan Transfer[/url], [a=Joe Pass], [a=Joe Sample], [a=Lalo Shifrin], [a=Diane Schuur], [a8284], and [a=Joe Zawinul]. He recorded with [a=Lee Ritenour], [a=Ernie Watts], and [a=Alex Acuña] in a band called [url=http://www.discogs.com/artist/Friendship+(3)]Friendship[/url] and has continued to record and travel with [url=http://www.discogs.com/artist/Lee+Ritenour]Lee[/url] and [a=Dave Grusin] for [l=GRP Records].
