December 14, 2009:
The Hartford Courant has finally decided to close down SEE! HEAR!, the column I started writing about the arts in 1997. The print edition was discontinued in October 0f 2008 but the blog has continued to live. Until now, that is.
Step Tempest will be my outlet for reviews, previews and links to jazz, classical and other music that touches my life (and that I like to share.) There is lots and lots of music out there and plenty of people blogging about it - through my writing, I hope readers discover new artists or rediscover composers or performers who they may have forgotten over the years.
We'll see where this obsession leads. Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
