A new voice on the blog

crane Hello to all of Yoko’s fans. I thought I’d take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Jason Crane, and starting today I’m taking over for Tegan as the writer of this blog. You’ll also find me on Facebook and Twitter updating Yoko’s pages. Tegan, our former blogger, is moving on to focus on graduate school. She can be reached at tegankehoe.com, and she remains a fan of the Yoko Miwa Trio.

A little about me: I host a popular jazz interview show called The Jazz Session, featuring in-depth interviews with jazz musicians from around the world. I’m also a poet and a freelance writer.

Like Yoko, I speak Japanese, though not as well as she does. I lived in Japan twice, first in northern Japan (Miyagi Prefecture), then in Yokohama. I saw lots of great jazz in both places, and interacted with many passionate jazz fans.

After years of living in New York City, I now live in the slightly less cosmopolitan town of State College, PA, home of Penn State. But I travel to New York often to conduct interviews and hear live music.

Speaking of which, I hope to see many of you in New York on March 23 when Yoko plays the 11:30 and 1:30 sets at the famed Blue Note jazz club. Get your tickets now!

I look forward to interacting with all of you and helping to get the word out about Yoko’s music.
