This past Wednesday I was the featured poet at historic Caffe Lena in 
Saratoga Springs. The place was packed and the reading was a ton of fun 
(despite a heckler in the audience). If you missed it, the audio of my 
reading is now available at 

Speaking of poetry, I wrote a poem in response to the shootings in 
Tucson. It's not a very hopeful poem, but it's an honest expression of 
my feelings:


One final poetry note: I launched a new poetry zine last week called 
Daylight Robbery. You can get a copy at http://snafupress.com.

I'm still working on finding a job in NYC. Here's my resume:

Peace, love and jazz,


This week on The Jazz Session:

TJS #230: Jason Stein. Bass clarinetist Jason Stein and his trio 
Locksmith Isadore have just released their third album, Three Kinds Of 
Happiness (NotTwo, 2010). In this interview, Stein talks about why he 
started playing bass clarinet; how this album marks a new beginning for 
the trio; and how he approaches solo performances on the bass clarinet. 

TJS #231: Jane Ira Bloom. Soprano saxophonist Jane Ira Bloom delivers 
yet another excellent record with Wingwalker (Outline, 2011). In this 
interview, Bloom talks about her use of movement in performance; why she 
doesn’t feel the need to “script” much of the recording process; and how 
some solos can only be played amidst great silence. SHOW AVAILABLE 
STARTING 1/13/11.
