The NETWORK for The Core DJ Syndicated Radio Show
Born in Syracuse, NY to a decidedly un-musical, un-artistic, strict-ass Pentecostal environment, Curtis began drawing cartoons at an early age before gravitating to music. “Billy Preston and Stevie Wonder blew my mind! Innervisions was the album that really got me going before I discovered jazz fusion”
ON LEARNING KEYBOARDS..when Curtis first started learning to play, he was inspired by the jazz rock movement of the day…Hancock and Corea, Zawinul in Weather Report. When he first moved to Seattle, he worked with Powerlight who had many powerful cats playing keys…Dennis Blackmon, Gordy Botler, and Butch Ford, they all taught him a lot about concept of sound.
HIS KEYBOARD EQUIPMENT: Korg Triton LE, Yamaha Motif ES6, Novation K Station
