Hi everyone, I'm happy to welcome you to "Voice Talk," the "blog" component of this website. This is where I hope to update, with some regularity and frequency, the goings on in my emerging music spheres while residing in New York City, spheres that follow my commitment to the space and excellent work of singers and women in jazz. Updates may take the form of concert write-ups, excerpts from my conversations with musicians, narrations of ordinary and extraordinary events, and exploratory musings on the state of things. Above all, and drawing inspiration from the great lineage of music writers in New York City and beyond, as well as my contemporary jazz bloggers out there, my aspiration is that in these pages and through the medium of the written word, musicians and listeners may find a meaningful musical contribution. Since this is about a creating and joining conversations, I'd be so happy to hear from you, so please do add your writing, comments, critiques to the mix.
