Welcome music lovers. Read on for reviews of new music, re-discovery of old, and musing on the spaces in between. I hope this collection helps expand your collection of music, books, and other content that brings you joy.

My musical tastes are very broad, ranging across the jazz, funk, rock, folk, reggae, R&B, hip-hop, and electronic genres. What interests me most are the connections in between genres and the influences that today’s artists draw from the masters.

Much of my exposure to new music comes from innovative radio DJs, usually from the world of community and public broadcasting. Two such favourites are Gilles Peterson of BBC Radio 1 and Jason Palma of CIUT 89.5 FM in Toronto.
