Dominic’s favorite beverage is the Kulmbacher Mönchshof Schwarzbier.

“Which I love to drink at Mr. Dunderbak’s with some Schnitzel.”

“Because I connect deeply with his mastery, artistry, and philosophy. Bill’s album “Undercurrent” with guitarist Jim Hall has had a massive effect on my musical life.”
