Poet M.L. Liebler
and jazz guitarist/poet Ron English
are the November guests on Detroit JazzStage
. M.L. fronts the group, M. L. Liebler & The Magic Poetry Band. By day, he is a Wayne State University professor (and St. Clair Shores, Michigan's first Poet Laureate). Over the last twenty plus years, M.L. has combined his insightful, urban poetry with the funky tones of modern jazz, resulting in a perfect elision of sound and vision. Ron has enjoyed a long and varied music career, with roots wide and deep in blues, Broadway, bebop, avant-garde, funk, Motown, and gospel. M.L. and Ron share their views of how poetry and jazz are intertwined, plus discuss their 2007 CD The Kurl Of The Butterfly's Tongue." Hear their story at jazzstage.us Jazzstage Productions
