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.
