Derek Stone

Derek Stone was born in the sunny state of Florida, but has since migrated to the “Land of the Morning Calm,” South Korea, where he teaches English. His first brush with free jazz was through Albert Ayler’s “Spiritual Unity,” an album which he initially hated but has since come to admire greatly. He spends his free time hanging out with his girlfriend and trying to get her to do her best “For Alto”-era Braxton impression (it’s really quite accurate). He’s currently a student of Applied Linguistics at the University of Birmingham (via distance learning) and is desperately trying not to go mad from the excessive work-load.
