I am a columnist, reviewer and author, writing about music, mostly jazz but also other genres. I have written with and about Sting, David Bowie, Peter Brotzmann, Mats Gustafsson, Ivo Perelman and many more. I have run a music festival and also worked on several radio shows, including the acclaimed Women In Jazz series for Jazzbites. My books include 'Women In Jazz', All That's Jazz' and 'Pause, Play, Repeat' and the books have achieved awards and critical acclaim.
My music taste includes free jazz and also other jazz genres.
Simply to share music with others, write about it and sometimes bring issues to the fore, such as the book ' Pause, Play, repeat which highlights the issues faced by musicians during the Covid-19 pandemic and is 18 interviews with stellar musicians about how they dealt with sudden loss of income, confusing advice and more.
A world where music unites us, where people are equal regardless of any criteria and we simply share and enjoy music.
