Other key Publications/Productions
350+ albums on various labels feature my photography, liner notes, or both, and an even larger number of book covers and periodicals, unto the New York Times. Magazine involvements have included JAZZ (1970s) DownBeat and Swing Journal (1980s), Jazz Forum and JazzTimes (1980s-1990s), CODA (1980s-2000s) and Cadence (2012-present). Since the 1980s, I have had several jazz-related photographic exhibitions in the USA, Canada, Poland and Germany. In 1984, I won Grand Prix in the Jazz Photo International competition. My weekly radio program OPEN EAR (presently on hiatus)was both broadcast and streamed on WLUR-FM for more than a decade.
My interests in jazz are:
wide and varied...
More about what I do:
I try to listen to what I hear, to see what I look at, to practice visual non-fiction by means of creative documentary photography, and to write clearly and concisely on subjects of consequence so as to further my quest to be, at once, an advocate, insightful observer and critic.
I support the JJA because
A rising tide lifts all boats, and, as Dr. King said, we may have arrived on different ships, but we're all in the same boat now...
