CIR: Giovanni Russonello with AJ Hall and Nigel Hall

GR

A.J. Hall and Nigel Hall, two of New Orleans's mastermind musicians — and not brothers! — will talk about their years performing with and supporting some of the city's top acts, and how they've carried on its rich and varied legacies of jazz, funk, traditional music and more.

Our inaugural critic in 2019 is Giovanni Russonello, who covers jazz and improvised music for the New York Times, and runs the D.C.-based jazz advocacy group CapitalBop.

He previously covered the 2016 election as a member of the Times’ news surveys team.

His writing has appeared in the Washington Post, NPR Music, JazzTimes, The FADER, DownBeat and the Investigative Reporting Workshop, among others. For more than two years he hosted “On the Margin,” a weekly books show on WPFW-FM in Washington, D.C. He graduated from Tufts University with a bachelor’s degree in history, with a focus on African-American history.
