Known to many in and outside the music world as Alfie, this native of Bryn Mawr, PA, near Philadelphia, has been playing piano since the age of 3. Alfie credits his musically-accomplished parents, and jazz giants McCoy Tyner and John Coltrane as artists who have helped shape his distinctive and evocative playing style. In talking about his playing, Alfie often says, "I have to go inside and reach for what the Creator has blessed me with." That blessing has resulted in his performing throughout the United States with Billy Paul, Norman Connors, Barbara Mason, Johnny Hartman, and Philadelphia’s Teddy Pendergrass, which included playing on one of Teddy’s records that went platinum, and internationally in Trinidad, Brazil, Jamaica, Canada, and England. His first CD release on PTME’s label, Alfie, consisting of a collection of this remarkable musician’s original tunes, clearly, demonstrates his creative genius as a composer.
