About the Author

Hey everybody, my name is Blaine Fallis. Studied jazz at NTSU (now UNT) for 2 1/2 years before going on the road as a bassist for 4 years. I used to write for About.com as their Jazz Guide and later their Contemporary Jazz Guide, or whatever they decided to call it at the time. That went on 4 years. Later I edited for AllAboutJazz and wrote occasional articles and reviews there. Modernjazz.com is a site I ran for awhile but put it on hold. Well, it's back, baby! Currently my wife and I run A-Train Creative: atraincreative.com
