I'm Sanctified and Southern Fried / Mama tried and daddy cried / I tell the truth 'cept when I've lied / And like my huevos on the side.

I am two weeks post-surgery for a torn rotator cuff. This coupled with the move is requiring me to curtail my writing for the rest of the year. While I am unable to accept any new writing assignments until 2022, I will be cleaning up some old lingering projects.

Thank you all for your continued patience. I am looking forward to retuning to full writing mode.



My Jazz Story

Published on: 2017-06-14

I was first exposed to jazz in high school after purchasing Miles Davis' "Kind of Blue" like about a zillion others. It was not until my introduction to alto saxophonist Art Pepper, that I really embraced jazz...and it has been a love affair since then.

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!
