Hey Mr. President, I finally read your book

After another lengthy period of not blogging and the onset of a new academic term, I thought I would take the time to engage in a little bit of self-reflection and offer an update as to my ever-changing status as an aspiring jazz musician, writer and scholar. Forgive me this navel-gazing post, as it also serves to help me think through how this blog and the rest of my online identity develops over time. Read the rest of this entry »

This announcement is very last-minute, but if you’re in the NYC area and don’t have any plans tonight, come hear me give a talk at Rutgers-Newark’s Institute of Jazz Studies on my Master’s thesis research. The title of the talk is “White and Blue: Alternate Takes on Jack Teagarden” and will give a broad overview of my attempt to understand Teagarden’s music and its place in American (and global) society.

The details: tonight, April 21, at 7:00 PM, at the Institute of Jazz Studies (4th floor Dana library, map here)

I hope to see you there! If not, I’ll get a recording and would be happy to share it with any interested parties.
