These are the aural adventures of a freelance music critic living in NYC. You can read my stuff in Time Out NY, Time Out Chicago, Playboy.com and in Paste magazine, among other spots. I’m the author of two editions of Jazz Guide NYC (Little Bookroom; 2003 and 2006), and have contributed to a zillion rags, including the New York Sun, Wall Street Journal, GQ, Newsday, Spin, Salon.com, Stomp and Stammer, Jazziz, Jazz Times, Downbeat, the Oxford American, Stereophile, and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, where I was the chief pop music guy during the Clinton Era. I live in Park Slope, Brooklyn, in spitting distance of Barbes, one of the best music bars in North America.
