The Poetry of Jazz CD Release Concert
Saxophonist/composer Benjamin Boone's "The Poetry of Jazz," a collaboration with the late U.S. Poet Laureate Philip Levine, was recognized as a milestone poetry/jazz project immediately upon its release last March. Praised in leading musical and literary publications, featured on NPR's "All Things Considered," and voted the #3 "Jazz Album of 2018" in DownBeat's annual Readers Poll, "The Poetry of Jazz" established Boone and Levine as two of the most captivating and compelling voices among contemporary artists exploring the intersections between poetry and jazz.

The Poetry of Jazz Volume Two, recorded during the same sessions that produced the first album, will be released by Origin Records on January 18. A nonpareil artistic achievement on both musical and literary fronts, Volume Two features an impressive cast of California players, including David Aus, Craig von Berg, Brian Hamada, Gary Newmark, Spee Kosloff, Nye Morton, Karen Marguth, Max Hembd, and Atticus and Asher Boone. Readers include Connie Hales, Dixie Salazar, Nikiko Masumoto, Kate McKnight, Marasol Baca, Ronald Dzerigian.

Come and hear tracks from the new CD as well as behind the scenes background about this collaboration. CDs available for signing. Admission is $15.
