Lost in music, caught in a trap, no turning back....

I never quite recovered from first hearing the Beatles, closely followed by Blondie in the late 70s. I stumbled into jazz via soul, electronica and the particularly open-minded post punk records of Working Week, Everything But The Girl, the Style Council & David Sylvian.

I believe the job of sites like AAJ and '', the blog I run with Matthew Ruddick, is to show that jazz need not be a dry intellectual exercise endlessly repeating the styles of some mythical golden age. Don't get me wrong I love Miles, Monk, Coltrane and Andrew Hill as much as the next man but they are not the end of the story.

I've been writing regularly for a few years now and also blog on music that isn't jazz at my own blog ''.
