Meet an Author

Published by Rich Van Voorst at 9:00 AM

Hi my name is Rich Van Voorst and I'm a grad student at the University of South Florida as well. I just finished a Masters in Jazz Composition and I'm currently going back for a third year to complete a Masters in Saxophone Performance. As Matt said, the point of this blog is to hip people to all the goings on in the straight ahead jazz scene in the greater Tampa area. We will focus on straight ahead jazz and stay away from the smooth jazz scene for the most part. Not to say that there is anything wrong with smooth jazz, but this blog serves to offer a solution to the many comments that we hear like "I can't really find any other jazz except smooth jazz." We hope you all enjoy it and we look forward to seeing you at upcoming shows.
