Welcome to Jazz Insights!

I created these short jazz history vignettes for a radio station. The subjects range from well-known figures to more obscure, but also very important figures.

One thing they all have in common is the important legacy they have left for posterity. I have also examined a number of genres, or subcategories of jazz and shed a light on important innovators and groups. A number of podcasts are titled “How Jazz Works,” where I demonstrate how jazz phrasing and improvisation work in a very accessible and clear way. Enjoy!
