His entertaining approach is based on these criteria - Canadian, Jewish, and covers most genres and genders; some alive or long passed. He has written from an historic, not music critique perspective and many will likely evoke….’I didn’t know that.’ or, ‘Why did you not write about…?’ There are many other worthy musicians he will write about. One day, they may be featured in another of his books.
