My interests in jazz are:
Covering jazz vinyl reissues and new releases. I also travel around my home state of Ohio as well as Michigan to cover jazz concerts in various venues. I have been a regular contributor to www.allaboutjazz.com since 1999. My articles/photos have appeared in Down Beat, Hot House and The New York Times. Furthermore, I contributed to the MusicHound reference books on Jazz and Swing recordings. I have penned liner notes for labels such as Criss Cross Jazz, Water Music, Smoke Sessions, SteepleChase, and Cellar Music Group.
More about what I do:
I am a jazz drummer working in Ohio and Michigan. I play regularly with guitarist Bob Niederriter's trio which features such Columbus organ greats as Tony Monaco and Jon Eshelman. I also work around the Cleveland/Akron area with the group Jazz Shepherds. In addition, my own organ group, The Chris Hovan Organic Trio, has appeared at The Bop Stop, BLU Jazz, The Treelawn, GRNoir and Cliff Bells. My Generations Quartet, featuring Cleveland trumpeter Mark Russo, has performed at the Bop Stop, BLU Jazz and Con Alma.
