Better Of . . .

I’ve got a few more year end “Best Of” lists in the works, some for other publications, and those have a strict cut off of items allowed.  But there was a lot of good music this year, more than can fit any list, so keep an eye on the tumblr to this blog, where I’l be posting individual looks at some of the better music of the year that has not yet made it into the longer essay/reviews here.


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.
