About Me

Although jazz was always part of my household growing up, I didn't really get into it until my early 20s, when lots of late night shifts on a lonely job got me acquainted with the likes of Sonny Rollins, Miles, Oscar Peterson and other bop/post-bop giants as well as the then emerging "new lions" and the smooth/fusion players. I am presently a writer on the performing arts (including weekly jazz feature) for leading daily newspaper in Kingston, Jamaica where I live, and also do weekly jazz DJ duties at a local lounge.

My Favorites

  1. Miles Davis - Kind of Blue
  2. John Coltrane - Blue Train
  3. Dizzy Reece - Mosaic Select series
