A simmering enthusiasm for jazz pushed me into finding the gumption to write about it. This has been great--even if describing a saxophone tone without using the word “plangent” is always a challenge. There is certainly no greater means of continually discovering how fertile the contemporary jazz scene is than writing about new jazz CDs, reviewing shows and interviewing artists--even if I find myself struggling to find the time to listen to, say, an old Jelly Roll Morton record. I live in Chicago.
