In a week, the season premier of “Mad Men,” as stylish, dense and quietly mysterious show there has ever been.  And in the early fall, a new disc from Henry Threadgill, as stylish, dense and compellingly mysterious a jazz musician there is.  Stay tuned.

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.
