Trevor MacLaren

Trevor's life long obsession with music has led to jazz at 3AM and room full of worn out vinyl

About Me

I grew up in a small town on the east coast of Canada with a life long obsession that began with my Dad playing The Beatles and Buddy Holly. I began writing in junior high school, but began entwining the idea of writing with music in the late 90s which brought me here in 2002. Since that time I have been contributing the column Reassessing. With this forum I hope to bring new ears to some of jazz's overlooked or outsider releases while looking at the impact of some of jazz's better known artists and records. Always feel free to write and rap about the columns or music.
