About Me

Growing up in a family that disliked Jazz, but also having a great sax player as an uncle helped expose me to Jazz the right way.

I attended NYU and UCLA. I still play jazz on the weekends when I'm not reviewing concerts!

I have had 29 articles published to date and would be excited about working with All About Jazz, Michael and his great staff!

I've been to 17 countries , have visited more than 275 cites but having the opportunity to broadcast night the

My Jazz Story

I love jazz because... I believe it's the most creative form of music in the world I was first exposed to jazz... by my uncle, a well known saxophonist I met [musician name]... Jacki DePiro, Dianne Reeves, Cory Pesaturo, Eric Marienthal, Chick Corea, Rick DePiro, Ryan Cross, David Sanborn, The best show I ever attended was... Playboy Jazz Festival, Hollywood Bowl The first jazz record I bought was... Miles Davis My advice to new listeners... Listen without interuptions, cell phones, tablets or anyone bothering you -- Jazz is PERSONAL! Or whatever else you have in mind. -- It's THE American contribution to the Music History books, it's THE most creative and MOST fulfilling music on the planet!

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
