Welcome to my site.

I am an author of 5 books and also a columnist for Free Jazz Collective,  Something Else Reviews, and jazz correspondent for Platinum Mind. I am also the International editor for the Jazz Journalists Association. 
I have been on the BBC, Jazz Bites Radio and covered live shows for BBC radio 3. My book 'The Wonder of Jazz' went to number 1 on Amazon.  
I also ran the wonderful mini festival - the London jazz Platform , which showcased musicians from the UK, New Orleans and Europe. I 
have had material commissioned and accepted into The Library of Congress.

Awards: Jazz Times Distaff Award, JT Gearhead List, Phace Magazines' Music Book of The Year, JJA Best Book Nominee 

This site is for articles, reviews and discussion about jazz music - and often other subjects too. Check out my Jazz Report
