Freelance writer and editor, publisher of the blog Jazz (Jazzers Jazzing), Senior Editor and contributor at All About Jazz since 2009.
Carl L. Hager is a freelance writer and editor. He publishes a popular blog, Jazz (Jazzers Jazzing), and is a Senior Editor at All About Jazz, where he has been a contributor since 2009.
He also appears regularly on the program All Things Social for WJSU-FM 88.5 in Jackson, Mississippi, where he reviews CDs and books.
Hager has written liner notes for recording artists (Grammy-winning drummer Lenny White's Anomaly, Grammy-nominated lyricist/vocalist Lorraine Feather's Tales of the Unusual), as well as reviews and industry commentary/opinion.
He wrote an 11,000-word piece on me for All About Jazz that was by far the most comprehensive any journalist has ever done. Not only was Carl absolutely thorough in getting his facts straight, he made insightful comments that were not just the norm, and displayed an admirable level of craft. I then engaged his services to do liner notes for Tales of the Unusual, the follow-up album to my [Grammy-nominated] release Ages, and was extremely happy with the result. What he wrote was beautifully descriptive and has been quoted by both other journalists and radio interviewers in their observations about the music, something which is not all that common. I have also used Carl as an editor and proofreader; he doesn't miss a thing. -- Lorraine Feather, lyricist and recording artist
In addition to working with the music community on all phases of print communications, press and public relations, his freelance work includes professional and technical writing, as well as copy and developmental editing.
