Voice-over Artist - Cloudcaster - Raconteur
With tongue only slightly planted in cheek, Roger refers to himself as a raconteur simply for lack of a better term.
Having his Bachelor’s degree in theatre, and his Master’s in Media Studies, Roger’s writing includes theatrical works as well as pieces of music and cultural criticism. He has contributed to numerous websites including The Huffington Post, JamBase, All About Jazz, as well as his own blog, Otherweis…
He hosts a music/culture cloudcast entitled “When You Play It Say It.” He is also available for voice over work.
Roger prefers staples to paperclips, vinyl to CDs, Moogs to ARPs, Coke to Pepsi, Diet Pepsi to Diet Coke, Star Wars to Star Trek, The Who to The Stones, and writing letters to making phone calls.
The latest episode of When You Play It, Say It! is available to stream on Mixcloud. This time I sat down with jazz bassist, composer, and arranger (though not necessarily in that order), Matthew Snow.
We talked extensively about his approach to composition and instrumentation, the artists who influenced that approach, and how all of this came not play his new album, Iridescence, his first as a bandleader.
Then we played some crazy deeps cuts that maybe some a few hardcore jazzheads will dig.
