Wide-ranging - traditional, swing, bop, post-bop and Brazilian. Recent articles and reviews include DownBeat
June 2018 feature interview with Kurt Elling; Dec 2017 DownBeat cover story on Wynton Marsalis; features on Anat Cohen and Jon Batiste. For Jazz Times, a Dec 2017 interview with singer Catherine Russell; and "The Sound of Film to Come," about the history of jazz in cinema, for The Guardian.
More about what I do:
I lecture frequently about jazz history on Cunard's Queen Mary 2 and at colleges and libraries. I also write liner notes and biographical material for jazz artists. Recent liner notes for albums by Leslie Pintchik "You Eat My Food...etc," (Pintch Hard), and Ron Carter/Houston Person duo album "Chemistry" (HighNote).
