Through his bassistonline.com website, John provides bass parts for recording clients of every musical genre ranging across the US, as well as internationally. He has backed and/or recorded for a wide array of artists from vocalists Mel Torme, Rosemary Clooney, Phil Driscoll, and Wayne Watson, to jazz artists such as Woody Herman, Randy Brecker, Marvin Stamm, Joe McBride, Bobby Lyle, Carl Fontana, Chet Baker, Clark Terry, Dave Liebman, and others.
