Birthday, Birthday

Every year there are two big birthdays on this date, especially for jazz lovers. Celebrating together, King’s Crown Radio, WKCR and the one, the onliest, Thelonious Monk.


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.
