New photo

If you’re reading this post at (rather than via the RSS feed), you might have noticed a new photo at the top of the page. For months, the header was a photo of me, taken by my sister in front of the Lincoln Center fountain.

I took the new photo last weekend in Bushwick, Brooklyn, outside the Pine Box Rock Shop, where I went for the Vegan Shop-Up. These buildings are on the corner of Grattan Street and Bogart Street. It was a gorgeous day and I loved the way the light hit the buildings.

New page — “Recorded Readings”

I’ve done quite a few poetry readings over the past year, several of which have been recorded. I finally got around to putting them all together on one page — Recorded Readings. You can also access this page from the navigation menu on the upper right. Enjoy!

Returning to

Howdy, friends.

For a long time now, this site has had a static front page directing you to other places. However, is still the first thing that comes up when you Google my name (not that I have, of course, but that’s what people tell me). And there are some things that happen to me that don’t fit at The Jazz Session or

So I’ve decided to start posting here again, and to also use this site to aggregate my work from other places.

And then, in a couple months, I’ll give up again.

Where the heck is Jason?

For those few of you who are wondering why it’s been so long since I updated this site, I have an answer. I’m spending most of my time these days at two of my other sites:

So head to those and see what I’ve been up to!

New section: PRESS

If you know me at all, you know I’m a media whore. With that in mind, I’ve added a new PRESS section to the site. It’s over there on the right side of the screen, and it contains articles about yours truly for your reading pleasure.

Getting my Web house in order

So we are. is up and running, the first episode of The Jason Crane Show is on the site and on iTunes, and things seem to be humming along quite nicely, thank you.

What would any rational person do at a time like this? Make things more complicated, of course. And we all know I’m rational — it says so right next to my photo.

Here’s how my brain is working. I think that the podcast should have its own site, like it used to when it was a radio show. And like it will if it’s a radio show again someday. So I’ve revived to serve as the online home of the podcast. I’m still working out how to revise the technical details for iTunes and the other listing sites. While I’m working that out, I’ll keep the shows at this site, too. But please head over to to look for podcasts. Within a day or two, I should have all the feeds and iTunes subscription buttons up at that site, too.

Thanks for your patience while I work all this out.

That’s a one-click iTunes subscription button. If you click on it, it will open iTunes, subscribe you to The Jason Crane Show, and start downloading the most recent show. Cool, huh? (Thanks to Dan Klass for the tip!)
