About Me

I began as the Grateful Dead's publicist in 1984, and have since worked with many different musicians, bands, record companies, and promoters, including Zakir Hussain, Steve Kimock, Little Feat, Bill Payne (solo career), Boris Garcia, Bob Weir & RatDog, and so forth.

I'm about to publish my third book, “On Highway 61,” (Counterpoint Press, Berkeley, 2014).

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
