Billy has been performing with the band members in various formats for the last thirty years, starting when he moved from New York to Los Angeles in 1981. Billy met the great John Gross at that time along with other great LA jazz musicians playing in Tom Persons' big band. Billy started playing with incredible Putter Smith in Alan Broadbent's Trio in 1989. In 2003 Billy moved back to New York City where he started playing in Roberta Piket's trio. Roberta is a world class pianist, composer, arranger and orchestrator. Recently this group of musicians performed several concerts in New York City and recorded an upcoming release of Billy's engaging and memorable compositions.
