Jazz is in her soul

About Me

Started writing poetry at age ten. Couldn't make them rhyme until I seriously started writing lyrics in the 1960s. Have had at least 40 of my songs recorded on different labels by singers including Nancy Wilson, Merry Clayton, LaVerne Butler and Giacomo Gates. Have always loved jazz. Wrote for the now defunct Cash Box Magazine. Did and still do liner copy for various record companies. Continue to do CD and performance reviews and liner copy. Spent a lot of years in the recording industry, so I know both the administrative and creative sides of the business. Also, met and continue to meet a lot of wonderfully talented people. Consider myself a non-performing musician. My words are pretty much my instrument.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
