He has played and toured with some heavies, including Donald Harrison, Terence Blanchard, Ellis Marsalis, Wynton Marsalis, Jason Marsalis (vibes), Peter Martin, Reuben Rogers, Peter Bernstein, Aaron Goldberg, Frank Morgan, Ron Blake (SNL), Eric Reed, Charlie Hunter, Delfeayo Marsalis and the Uptown Jazz Orchestra, LOUQUE, James Tealy, Jamil Sharif, Wess "Warm Daddy" Anderson, Matt Ray Trio, Jermey Pelt, Evan Christopher, Petr Cancura, Sam Fribush Trio, and Wycliffe Gordon.
Geoff was also active with Wynton Marsalis’ Lincoln Center educational programs in the five boroughs of NYC, as well as with Melissa Walker’s Jazz House Kids with Christian McBride workshops in NJ inner city school system. To this day, Geoff continues to tour, educate and record his musical gifts and its ability to reach deeper into our consciousness to facilitate emotional, mental, and spiritual expansion.
