About Me

I've been a working journalist for the past seven years, and have also studied the piano for about the same amount of time. Studying music brought up my interest in jazz and it's now my favorite type of music, bar none. My wife and I live in Suffolk County, Long Island, where both of us are students working towards our teaching degrees. While I love music, my biggest goal is to pursue a writing career.

  2. Chet Baker - The Best of Chet Baker Sings
  3. The Quartet - Jazz at Massey Hall
