Big Lucks

Following a (seemingly) incredible long hiatus during which I was doing my first two years as a teacher, I am back! And just in time for the publication of one of my old stories, and one I’m particularly partial to, “Bud Powell, Composed in Four Elements”. It’s weird as hell and just posted at Big Lucks magazine. Hope you fine folks enjoy it. Here is a cool album cover, while you’re at it.

Tribe Issue 32

I got a poem into the latest issue of Tribe, a London magazine of art, design, music, and writing. So much cool artwork to check out in this issue. Find me on p. 21. More soon! xxx

In Parentheses

Brand new poems now up at In Parentheses, a journal of new modernist writing. They’re from a series I’ve been writing based on a few of my favourite jazz compositions, in this case “Pannonica” from Monk’s Brilliant Corners and Ellington’s “The Mooche”, best version to be found on Ellington Uptown. Both are on Youtube and well worth a listen. Currently working on a longer narrative sequence based on Duke’s life.
