Sammy Stein, Author
Hello and welcome to my site.
Here you can find information about my professional services, books and links to the blog page where you will find articles discussing all things jazz plus reviews. I write about music, jazz in particular but music of all kinds. I advocate for female musicians and musicians who have yet to be discovered.
As an author, I have had 6 books published, been commissioned by Readers' Digest, Library of Congress and WeJAzz Helsinki. I review for major columns. I also create liner and sleeve notes for musicians. I am lucky enough to have won awards including Literary Titan 5 star, Readers' Favourite top review, Jazz Times Distaff award, Gearhead listing on Jaxx Times, and several other awards.
I have covered gigs for the BBC and curated a jazz festival in London. One of my books went to number 1 on Amazon. I have presented for US station Jazz Bites Radio, and curated show series for them, and appeared as a guest on BBC radio shows, blogs, and interviews.
What I enjoy is interviewing musicians, reviewing their work and creating interesting articles, usually with a high input from those in the industry. The articles reflect issues that need to be discussed in the music industry. I also enjoy shing a light on musicians and issues which normally get little coverage but deserve more.
Awards include: Jazz Times Distaff Award, JT Gearhead List, Phace Magazines' Music Book of The Year, JJA Best Book Nominee. Readers' Choice 5 star award for The Wonder of Jazz, All About Jazz number 1 review article.
This site is for articles, reviews and discussion about jazz music - and often other subjects too. Check out my Jazz Report blog to posts connected to the music that drives many people and leads to creative collaborations that can surprise and delight.
