A night with ruth weiss
Hal Davis - log, Doug O'Connor - double bass, Rent Romus - saxophones/flutes, Doug Lynner - Mystery Serge Synth

Born in Germany in 1928 and escaping fascist occupation from Austria in 1939, founder of jazz beat poetry, ruth weiss began experimenting with jazz and poetry in Chicago in 1948. Later she lead the series at The Cellar in San Francisco in 1956 that would propel her contemporaries Jack Kerouac, Neal Cassady and others to world wide recognition. In 1996 writer Barbara Knight helped to propel ruth onto the world stage with her book "Women of the Beat Generation: The Writers, Artists and Muses at the Heart of a Revolution"
Now at 90 years her unique invention is going strong throughout the world today. weiss spells her name in lowercase as such as a symbolic protest against "law and order," since in her birthplace of Germany all nouns are spelled capitalized.
