About Me

I have been working in the building and construction industry for over 35 years. Graduated from Newark College of Engineering and have been in my own business since 1982. Presently working as a green builder and construction consultant. My recent goals are to become a more complete green builder since saving the planet is in all of our interest and to pursue my writing.

Had the opportunity to see many great acts over the years and never tire of the music in its many forms. Partial to fusion.

Most incredible concert experience: 1st Mahavishnu Orchestra at the old Farleigh Dickinson University in about the third row. When they came out and started to play with such speed and precision it made our jaws drop! I have been a McLaughlin fan ever since.

Have interviewed some fine musicians and really appreciate their time and art.

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.
