I've been writing about jazz since 1970 and I'm still at it.
Peter Occhiogrosso began his writing career as a jazz reviewer and interviewer for
publications including Down Beat, Village Voice, Melody Maker, and Swing Journal
(Japan), and as Music Editor for Manhattan’s Soho Weekly News during the 1970s
and ‘80s. Since then he has written books on spirituality and a popular guide to
world religions, The Joy of Sects. He has also coauthored Frank Zappa’s
autobiography (“The Real Frank Zappa Book”) and Michael Feinstein’s memoir,
“Nice Work if You Can Get It.”He has also worked with archetypal expert and with
self-help guru Caroline Myss, and yoga master Mark Whitwell. Three of the books
Peter coauthored have become New York Times Best Sellers.
He wrote the text for Grit and Glamour: The Street Style, High Fashion, and
Legendary Music of the 1970s, with photographs by Allan Tannenbaum, to be
published in October 2016 by Insight Editions of California.
