Remembering a Vegas musician


Remembering a Vegas musician

In 2003, as arts editor for Las Vegas CityLife, I asked him to pen CD reviews. He was a natural-born writer. We got along well because we had similar taste in jazz. And we both thought his siblings’ indie-rock band, the Big Friendly Corporation (whom he often joined onstage), underrated.
