About Me

For nine years, I've been the host of the Freedom Jazz Dance show over both the FM airwaves and online. I've been a contributor to All About Jazz since, well, I can't rightly remember. I recently launched an all-new online jazz webmag and interactive show at my Freedom Jazz Dance site that features music reviews, exclusive jazz content and dusty gems from my personal jazz archive. Over the years my music writing has been published in Jazz Improv, Living Blues, Amazon.com and other media that only people who are obsessed with music read. I'm a compulsive record collector and own a personal archive of over 6000 recordings, including vinyl and rare 78s. I believe that even on his worst days Art Pepper still played the best alto in jazz. In real life I work in advertising.

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.
