The author, enjoying the thrill of meeting Anthony Braxton.

Welcome to The World According to Rob. This site will eventually contain all of the jazz writing I’ve done in the last five years. I started writing out of necessity — because I wasn’t seeing the kind of music and musicians that really grab me getting much attention. I’m trying to change that. It’ll be pretty obvious when it’s all up that I have diverse tastes in music — I lean towards the so-called avant-garde, but I’m still fascinated by Charlie Parker and Charles Mingus. I think that great music is great music, period. So I don’t think it’s weird to be equally into Roscoe Mitchell and Joni Mitchell; Keith Jarrett and Hank Jones and Cecil Taylor. Woody Shaw and Clifford Brown are on par with Lester Bowie, Don Cherry and Kenny Wheeler. I love them all, and I respect the music and those who create it.

That’s it for now!
