Twitter is my evil social media drug of choice, where I post frequently.
At the moment you are looking at Do the Math, a blog (but really more like an internet magazine) that began in 2004 and runs well over a million words.
The most significant DTM posts are “pages,” organized by topic:
Interviews: Over 40 discussions, mostly with musicians: Billy Hart, Ron Carter, Keith Jarrett, Marc-André Hamelin, Carla Bley, Wynton Marsalis, many others.
Consult the Manual: Lessons, mainly material written for my piano students at New England Conservatory of Music.
Rhythm and Blues: Jazz music essays about McCoy Tyner, Thelonious Monk, Ornette Coleman, Geri Allen, Bud Powell, Lester Young, many others.
Sonatas and Études: Classical music essays about Glenn Gould, Igor Stravinsky, a few others.
Newgate Callendar: Crime fiction essays about Donald E. Westlake, Charles Willeford, a few others.
