About Me

I'm was born and raised in Montreal, Canada, home to a magnificent jazz festival. Like many of my generation, I was turned on to jazz in the fusion years and was particularly influenced by Jeff Beck's great albums, “Blow by Blow” and “Wired”. I moved on to explore other forms of jazz and enjoy everything from hard bop to free jazz and beyond. I moved to Berkeley, California in 1996 and was exposed to a very interesting and diverse Bay Area jazz scene. In 2001, I returned to the East Coast, landing in New York City. Needless to say, that city is home to a very rich musical environment and an insanely great jazz club scene.

I've been writing about jazz since the mid 1990s, but in recent years, jazz photography has become my primary obsession.

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.
