Kissing Cousins: Jazz + poetry = jazz poetry

Read "Kissing Cousins: Jazz + poetry = jazz poetry" reviewed by Jeff Winke

Believe it or not there have been times when jazz and poetry intertwine. The music inspires the poetry and creates a non-mainstream style of writing... jazz poetry. Innovations in music and poetics in the early part of the 20th century surfaced in the 1920's. The simultaneous evolution of poetry and jazz music was not ...
