The Company I'm Keeping

I’ve been asked to vote in the 60th annual downbeat magazine critic’s poll, which, as a longtime reader, is gratifying. Let’s see if they’ll have me back next year!


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.
