I compose, arrange, play guitars, bass, keyboards, rap, sing.. I just do my thing.. I played in the well known SF bay area fusion band CLOUDS in the 70s.. and before the days of all this bling I spent 2 years in the late 70s with THE DAVID LA FLAMME BAND touring the states.. sex drugs rock and roll.. had it all.. EVERYTHING.. but I wouldn't trade for what I got now.. my own way.. my own music.. my own thing.. an award winning composer of chamber music with university honors and published and recorded compositions, I am a jazz musician.. I've played with, among others, woody shaw, jon hendricks, julian priester and mike nock.. I'm no longer a classic cover tune or mainstream jazz artist, rather a jazz musician who believes in world music as trane did.. seeking to blend many genres into a fresh and innovative style of jazz.. after many years on the axe I've finally done a 2nd CD showing my style.. RAPSTER GUITARS IT.. 2.. 12 original songs and collabs featuring syntopia, margot du bois and TLT50.. order here direct: http://cdbaby.com/jnrapster all you guitar lovers should buy these 2 CDs from one of the most innovative guitarists on the net.. no tired "licks" here.. :-) thanks for your interest in my music :-) joe nickerson aka rapster aka nicky quick.. you can hear most of my 100+ songs on www.soundclick.com/rapster.. http://www.myspace.com/rapstermusic http://www.indiemusicworks.com/rapster COMMENTS: (thank you most kindly) :-) "theres no one I know can do what you do with a piece of music" "GDay Brother....
