An evening of POEMJAZZ featuring renowned poet Robert Pinsky, Grammy-winning pianist Laurence Hobgood and saxophonist, Stan Strickland. POEMJAZZ treats a voice speaking poetry as having a role likethat of a horn: speech with it’s own poetic melody and rhythm, in conversation with what the music is doing. It is a conversation between the sounds of poetry and music. “In jazz, as in poetry, there is always that play between what’s regular and what’s wild” says Robert Pinsky. Presented by Castle Hill Center for the Arts.
