RIP Mike Zwerin

Very sad to hear the announcement from one of his last employers, Bloomberg, of the death of musician (trombonist) and one of the greatest jazz writers, the Paris-based Mike Zwerin.

Condolences to the family. Zwerin’s books “Close Enough for Jazz” and “The Parisian Jazz Chronicles” are on the way to becoming classics. And many of the regular columns from the International Herald Tribune (1979-2005) and Bloomberg and a biography are to be found at

This is a very sad loss. Zwerin read and was a great source of encouragement in the early stages of setting up LondonJazz. RIP
