HMB: Black Magic

Via the Red Bull Music Academy website, here's a new essay on the jazz/metal intersection—a lab report drawn from my ongoing Heavy Metal Be-Bop research. (A print version appeared in The Daily Note, a free paper that circulates in NYC for the duration of the RBMA's May tenure.) By way of an online bonus track, I interviewed Mick Barr, who's discussed extensively in the article. Thanks to Piotr Orlov, Sam Hockley-Smith and Todd Burns for their help in bringing these pieces to life.

UPDATE: The extended cut of the Barr interview is now live at
