About Jeff Tamarkin


A former editor-in-chief of Goldmine, CMJ, Relix and Global Rhythm, Jeff Tamarkin is the Associate Editor of JazzTimes.

Jeff is the author of the biography Got a Revolution! The Turbulent Flight of Jefferson Airplane, as well as more than 75 liner notes and thousands of articles, reviews, press releases, bios, etc. Jeff has been a jazz fan since he was in the single digits and saw a couple of puppets lip-syncing to Oscar Peterson and Clark Terry's "Mumbles" on The Soupy Sales Show.
