Here you come again…

Welcome to Night After Night by me, Steve Smith.

As in all of my previous ventures – from blogging and freelancing through stints with Time Out New York, The New York Times, the Boston Globe, and National Sawdust Log – I cover music in its infinite richness and variety, emphasizing what’s happening here and now.

I’ll interview composers and performers about their newest projects, as well as bigger, broader ideas. I’ll review current recordings… and I’ll cover concerts, too, when the opportunity returns. And I’ll happily direct your attention toward pertinent news and reviews published elsewhere, too. I try to post twice a week, ideally on Tuesday and Friday, though present conditions sometimes hinder that ambition.

Right now, pretty much all posts are available to everyone. But paying subscribers eventually will have access to premium content now in planning stages—stay tuned.
