Educator, musician and journalist trying to keep the Gospel of Jazz burning.
After a lifetime learning and loving music -- and especially jazz -- I
can be found teaching guitar each weekend, my primary instrument. I've
also studied and played piano and saxophone.
As a full-time journalist, I've also looked for opportunities to
combine my interest with my vocation. I've written reviews for Jazz
Improv magazine, and several months ago, was asked to write a jazz
blog for my publisher (augmentedear.blogspot.com, which can also be
found through centraljersey.com).
As a guitarist, I'm most fond of fingerstyle jazz -- Joe Pass, Danny
Gatton and Ted Greene are my heroes. As a musician, I love inventive
composers -- Miles Davis, Oliver Nelson and Pat Metheny inspire me.
And as a fan, I love the beauty of fine compositions -- Gerald Wilson
and Quincy Jones get my blood going.
I love any music played with conviction, intelligence and grace -- as
long as it swings.
