About Me

I'm a freelance jazz musician in the New York area (graduate of William Paterson New Jersey) and also a freelance writer in the New York/New Jersey area.

My love for jazz started with John Coltrane's “Blue Train” in middle school and has exploded into all sub-genres, sounds, and time periods of jazz, from Jack Teagarden to Kneebody. The jazz I have reviewed is mostly in the modern “creative music” vein, but I have a love and enthusiasm for all musics under (and outside) the jazz umbrella.

I've began writing for AllAboutJazz in the summer of 2010 and since then have covered single-act performances, festivals, CD reviews and have also conducted several interviews. I've also covered acts like Kneebody for Feast of Music. The artists I've covered/reviewed/interviewed include:

Roy Haynes, The Undead Music Festival, Winter Jazzfest, Alan Ferber Nonet, Either/Orchestra, Billy Test, Less Magnetic, Susana Santos-Silva, Erica Seguine/Shannon Baker Orchestra, Jen Shyu, Chris Combs (of Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey),Theo Bleckmann, Amir El-Saffar and Shane Endsley.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
