The jazz poetry connection…

This entry on NPR’s great “A Blog Supreme” gives several examples of musician-poet collaborations. Poetry is closer to music and speech than prose in my opinion. Yusef Komunyakaa is probably my favorite “jazz inspired” poet. I dig the track with Amiri Baraka and David Murray here.
