He saw language and experience as the tools to probe the deepest layers of the human psyche. In his first year he was admitted to the undergraduate writers' workshop where he studied with Jorie Graham. As he produced poems unremittingly and charted the labyrinthine maze of academic life as an English major, he also played trumpet devotedly, getting a good classical foundation with David Greenhoe. Although not set on a career in music he was nonetheless engrossed in the music of the great jazz trumpeters, Louis Armstrong, Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis, to name a few. Chet Baker and Woody Shaw were also early favorites and of special import to his trumpet sound then and now.

The Dirty Old Men-NYC was formed as the brain child of singer/songwriter, Frank Grimaldi. Together with guitarist, singer and actor, Sandy Moore, the musicians started out as a duo in the fall of 2011. Originally thought to be strictly a blues band, the word “Dirty” was incorporated to convey The DOM’s bluesy, soulful and gritty sound, in the tradition of The Rolling Stones. “Old Men” refers to the fact that no one in the band is under 40. Though the joke of the name’s double meaning isn’t lost on the band members, they each can assure that they do not have a police record or live in a restricted area.
