From his involvement in many musical projects and collaborations, and through playing a wide variety of styles both in guitar and bass, he has developed a deep richness in his approach to rhythm, melody, and improvisation. Recent recording projects include: “Sky Meets Earth”; “Morning”, Rudy Love; “Infinite Love”; and “Blues in Ballet.” Ben has been teaching at Senseney Music since 2007.
