About Evan Haga

Evan_haga_profile_thumb

Current JazzTimes editor Evan Haga signed on with the magazine in May of 2006 as an associate editor and spent several years as managing editor. Under his direction, JazzTimes has won the Jazz Journalists Association’s Award for Best Periodical six times. His tasks at the magazine include everything from assigning and editing pieces to photo editing and assisting with design concepts. He also enjoys writing when his editorial gig allows: In addition to clips for JazzTimes, his reviews and profiles have appeared in HARP, Living Blues, the Baltimore Sun and NPR Music. His 2011 JazzTimes article "Night & Day," a comprehensive look at the relationship between jazz and heavy metal, won an ASCAP Deems Taylor Award.

Haga, a graduate of the University of Maryland, lives in Brooklyn. “There are many things about this job I love, but, yeah, the free CDs are my favorite perk,” he says. “Even if they keep my office and home in constant states of disarray.”
