Brian Kiwanuka

Brian Kiwanuka is a music nerd, lawyer and writer but not in that order. Ironically, he spent up until about the middle of high school with little to no interest in jazz due to his parents insistence on playing horrible Kenny G and R&B cover records, but thankfully he eventually found his way to Kind of Blue. A year or so after his family realized he was into jazz, his uncle gave him a mix of terrible R&B covers for Christmas. Over a decade and hundreds of jazz albums later, he is now still trying to make up for lost time. He doesn't really think it gets much better than Miles Davis, Stevie Wonder, Björk or A Tribe Called Quest. More of his writing on various music genres can be found on 93 Million Miles Above."
