    I threw something totally out of left field at Roger and he delivered a beautiful well placed grand piano part that anchors the whole piece.

    Billy Preston meets Jerry Lee Lewis. Another incredible contribution by a true pro. Thanks, Roger.

    What's there to say. Roger is no doubt in the top tier of Organ Players in the World. He was the perfect fit for my project from musical skills to personality. Looking forward to working with him on several other tunes.

    Roger was awesome to work with, in addition to nailing the feel of the song and playing a perfect part which really adds to my song, he is one of the most professional and kind people I have ever had an opportunity to meet. The whole process was super smooth.

    Roger added so much to my project. A master musician with so much soul it's hard to believe. I recommend Roger at the highest level!

    On my 75th birthday surprise, my wife and Emilio did a 'stealth' gift for me to not only see, but get 'green room access' to MY BAND, TOP! I walk into the theater in Wichita Kansas and who do I see...ROGER! I only have 2 fav Hammond cats, Roger and CT! Due props to Joey and the rest, but I've been a funk/soul man since 1956! Went to the 'green room and knelt before Emilio and Doc. They were embaraaaed as was my ewife, but it was my true expression of gratitude for what TOP has given me as a struggling B3 player/bandleader for decades. Thank you Roger for taking me to the green room!
