Programming Note

Phil Schaap was on my radio most of yesterday, telling me that WKCR is celebrating two birthdays from late Thursday through Friday; theirs and Thelonious Monk‘s. Don’t forget to tune in.


I'm a composer and musician, and I write about music—I do that here, for the New York Classical Review, at the Brooklyn Rail (I edit the music section there) and any place else that will have me, like New Music Box and Music & Literature. I also wrote the Miles Davis' Bitches Brew book in the 33 1/3 series.
