Promoting live jazz because, you had to be there.

About Me

In 2017, produced The Charleston Opera in a fully staged production of “La Boheme,” author of “The Jazz Corner Story”, a book which includes two live CDs, author of, an attempt to demystify the structure of jazz music.

In 2018, produced a jazz trio and Charlotte string quartet in Beethoven's 5th symphony, Barber's Adagio for strings and Vivaldi Four Seasons and in 2019, produced the Duke Ellington score of Greig's “Peer Gynt Suite,” and new scores of Ravel's Bolero and Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries played together by jazz and classical musicians from Atlanta.

Jazz, and all music, should be heard live. The white heat of live performance generates the best music.

Born in London, now lives in Nice, France and Hilton Head, SC, traveling Europe and its jazz festivals in summer and hibernating in The South through the winter.

Jazz is an adventure, the heartbeat of American history.

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!
