About Me

I'm a music and semi-humor writer based in the Lowcountry of South Carolina; my music writing has appeared in Billboard, the Chicago Sun-Times, Playboy, No Depression, a Jimmy Buffett fan newsletter in Pennsylvania for some reason and Backstreets, the leading magazine dedicated to Bruce Springsteen, who, I must admit, provided my introduction to the sax. My young son became briefly obsessed with Horace Silver's “Song For My Father,” which reduced me to tears for like a month. I also have what is probably the most obvious Desert Island list on this site.

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.
