My interests in jazz are:
Wide-ranging. I listen to and write about all forms of jazz around the world, but especially: improvised and creative music, Black American Music, world jazz, and Afro-Latin jazz. I'm also interested in jazz education, interdisciplinary studies, social advocacy, and community-building.
More about what I do:
Rhythm of Study is an online platform for in-depth engagement with current Black American music, jazz & improvisatory practices, and the Afrodiasporic communities and traditions from which they're emerged. The platform features perspectives from the arts/music industry, academia, and activism. The site is as run as public scholarship and service, built in the spirit of reciprocity and mutual care. Those interested in contributing to this mission are encouraged to contact me.
