About the Jazz Video Guy

A writer who has published over 200 articles and liner notes, and a documentary filmmaker, Bret has been at the forefront of new media since he co-founded Jazz Central Station, the first major Jazz website, in 1995. In 1997, he was the first Jazz blogger with Bird Lives, where, as the "Pariah," his heartfelt diatribes struck a responsive chord in the music industry.

In 1999, Bret began producing video webcasts for the Global Music Network including both Dave Brubeck and The Saxophone Summit Live from Birdland. He started his own new media company Planet Bret in 2002, and has since produced websites and videos for such artists as Sonny Rollins, Joe Lovano, Billy Taylor, Denny Zeitlin and Hendrik Meurkens.

With the advent of mini-DV video production and the web as a free distribution medium, Bret began actively producing videos for jazz artists on a regular basis and posting them on YouTube and iTunes in 2006 as the Jazz Video Guy.

His documentaries and video podcasts include Orrin Keepnews, Producer, and Ray Charles, Genius, for the Concord Music Group and The Sonny Rollins Podcast for Rollins' own Doxy Records, an ongoing documentary about the "Saxophone Colossus."

Today, Bret has over 350 videos online, with over 6.5 million views.
