Maestro Ron Carter

It is still hard to believe that Ron Carter, the preeminent jazz bassist, joined us on The New Jazz Listener. On Sunday, April 16th, Maestro hung out with us for an hour and a half listening to records and having a ball talking about them! It was surreal….magical.

If you missed it (or want to experience it again!), you can listen to the replay here. You can fast forward, rewind and pause the replay.

Tip: If you listen to the replay from a computer (not a phone), you will not be prompted to create a Clubhouse app profile. On the other hand, we truly invite you to join our beautiful New Jazz Listener community on Clubhouse!

Germany, Here I Come!

I am honored to announce that I have been nominated by the German Embassy in Washington and chosen as a participant of this year’s “Jazz in Germany” Visitors’ Program of the Federal Republic of Germany. Berlin, Frankfurt…..and who knows where else….I’ll be there in late October!

Do let me know if you’d like to meet over food, art, cool tech or, of course, some jazz.

And have I said lately how much I love Germany, Ambassador Emily Haber and former Chancellor Angela Merkel? ❤️

T. S. Monk Returned to NJL!


On June 16, 2022, the gracious T. S. Monk and his brilliant daughter Sierre returned to The New Jazz Listener on Clubhouse for an intimate conversation about the making of his new, critically-celebrated album, “Two Continents One Groove” on the eve of its release. It was an honor and quite a joy to host them again.

Play the video above to hear excerpts from the evening. Listen to the full conversation on our Clubhouse page.

Then hangout with me on The New Jazz Listener on Sundays at 4:00 PM ET.
