My interests in jazz are:
Covering jazz vinyl reissues and new releases. I also travel around my home state of Ohio as well as Michigan to cover jazz concerts in various venues. I have been a regular contributor to www.allaboutjazz.com since 1999. My articles/photos have appeared in Down Beat, Hot House and The New York Times. Furthermore, I contributed to the MusicHound reference books on Jazz and Swing recordings. I have penned liner notes for labels such as Criss Cross Jazz, Water Music, Smoke Sessions and Cellar Music Group.
More about what I do:
I am a jazz drummer working in Ohio and Michigan. I play regularly with guitarist Bob Niederriter's trio which features such Columbus organ greats as Tony Monaco and Jon Eshelman. I also work around the Cleveland/Akron area with the group Jazz Shepherds. In addition, my own organ group, The Chris Hovan Organic Trio, has appeared at The Bop Stop, BLU Jazz and Cliff Bells.
