The Poetry of Jazz and the Jazz of Poetry

Eve Libertine and Penny Rimbaud present an evening celebrating beat poets Jack Kerouac and Alan Ginsberg.

Penny will open with ‘How?’, his rewrite of Ginsberg’s ‘Howl’ accompanied by Kate Shortt on cello.

I saw the best mind of my generation gagged by the opiate of capital.

Eve will follow with Keroauc’s key sound-poem ‘Sea’ alongside Kate Shortt, Justina Curtis on keyboards and a percussionist.

No human words bespeak the token sorrow older than old this wave becrashing smarts the sand with plosh of twirled sandy thought.
