Spreading his love for vocal jazz to all corners of the world

About Me

I've been playing (piano) and singing jazz for the better part of 20 years now. since the age of 18 I've been in a “jazz craze”, in particular Piano jazz and Vocal Jazz. When an artist combines both of them, it's heaven for me.

My base is well rooted in Piano Jazz, being a long time follower of Marian McPartland's Piano Jazz, and an fervent admirer of Thelonious monk. I'm also very passionate about the works of Mal Waldron, Hank Jones, Barry Harris and George Shearing.

I've programmed jazz programs in various radio stations, and now I've conceived and created “Adore Jazz - the best in vocal jazz 24x7”, under the 1.FM umbrella. With my decades-long total devotion to music and (vocal and piano) jazz, my mission is to soothe my listeners' ears and intrigue my readers', with the best there was and the best there is in vocal (and piano) jazz.

My Jazz Story

I love jazz because it makes me dance inside. I was first exposed to jazz as a teenager. I met Mal Waldron when I was 21 y/o. The first jazz record I bought was Porgy & Bess / Louis Armstrong & Ella Fitzgerald. My advice to new listeners - have a friendly guide to the world of jazz, it's really big and taking the "wrong" first steps might lead you to the wrong conclusions. Listen to AdoreJazz.com for vocal jazz.

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.
