Poetry and Jazz: A Chronology

Read "Poetry and Jazz: A Chronology" reviewed by Duncan Heining

My intention here is to offer a detailed but inevitably incomplete chronology of poetry and jazz. The focus is solely on the combination of the two art forms in performance, not on poetry about jazz or jazz musicians or poetry inspired by jazz but not performed to music.

On the other hand, he was an extraordinary musician, one whose influence will no doubt be felt for generations to come. Brubeck, who remained active almost to the end of his life, died December 5 ...

Brew Moore: The Brew Moore Quintet

Read "The Brew Moore Quintet" reviewed by Mike Neely

That Brew Moore was a disciple of Lester Young is a cliché ¢y now, but too few are aware of how good a saxophonist Brew Moore could be. The Brew Moore Quintet was originally recorded in 1956. It has been recently re-mastered, presenting Moore in a relaxed setting playing solo after solo of swinging, soulful jazz.
