About Me

In addition to my scholarly work, I often write for newspapers and magazines, including the WSJ, NYT, LA Times, Chicago Tribune, Le Monde Diplomatique, Foreign Policy, CounterPunch, World Affairs, Prospect, NY Daily News, etc. I’m a native Chicagoan and have written on music for Living Blues, The Griot, CounterPunch, and Southern Cultures.

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.
