Kurt Gottschalk

Kurt Gottschalk writes about music, his attention focused in no small part on what Anthony Braxton brilliantly termed the "post Ayler/Cage continuum." His writings about music have appeared in All About Jazz, Signal to Noise, The Wire, Guitar Player, the NYC Jazz Record, the Brooklyn Rail and Time Out-New York, among other publications, and his syndicated column "New York is Now" runs in ImproJazz (France), Jazz.pt (Portugal) and Jazz.ru (Russia). He is the host of the Miniature Minotaurs program on WFMU and struggles with a variety of stringed instruments. He almost never writes about himself in the third person.
