POEMJAZZ EVENT: Robert Pinsky's poetry accompanied by jazz pianist Laurence Hobgood
POEMJAZZ featuring renowned poet ROBERT PINSKY and Grammy-winning jazz pianist LAURENCE HOBGOOD comes to Greater Boston, in concert and live at The Regattabar, Friday, February 24.
POEMJAZZ treats a voice speaking poetry as having a role like that of a horn: speech with its own poetic melody and rhythm, in conversation with what the music is doing. To put it simply, POEMJAZZ is a conversation between the sounds of poetry and music. POEMJAZZ is also a hot new CD, just recorded by Robert Pinsky and Laurence Hobgood on the Circumstantial Productions label. The limited edition CD with booklet of poems will be available at www.circumstantial.us and at Robert and Laurence's POEMJAZZ performances.
