POEMJAZZ features renowned poet ROBERT PINSKY and Grammy-winning jazz pianist LAURENCE HOBGOOD. This collaboration treats a voice speaking poetry as having a role like that of a horn: speech with its own poetic melody and rhythm, in conversation with what the music is doing. To put it simply, POEMJAZZ is a conversation between the sounds of poetry and music. POEMJAZZ was just recorded by Robert Pinsky and Laurence Hobgood on the Circumstantial Productions label.
