About Me

Given the power of information (first predicted to me by George Orwell in the novel, “1984”), writing is especially risky these days. It's a good thing I enjoy it so much.

I began writing as a broadcast journalist on radio: writing, producing and delivering news on the hour. The high point there had to be speaking with Wayne Gtretzky privately (for about 28 seconds) in the Edmonton Oilers dressing room in 1986. It was post-game and I caught him coming out of the shower (wearing a towel). What a scoop -- short as it was.

I am inspired to find truth in the stories I discover. In this sense, I am a lot like a jazz musician trying to find the right note by improvisation.

Back to work! Thanks for stopping by.

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.
