About Me

Been listening to jazz for 15+ years. I used to write for several publications, as well as doing some liner notes and promotional writing. I even had a short-lived site ( that three or four people might remember, but drifted away from it for a few years. Happy to be writing again and spreading the word about the sounds that I'm hearing. Incidentally, I love a lot of music beyond jazz as well.
