Event Description

Poetry meets jazz in this free online performance! Take a journey through the history of Jazz Poetry with poems read aloud from the Harlem Renaissance, the Beat era, and modern times, layered with jazz music that adds an unexpected new dimension to the words. This creative collaboration is curated by City Verses Artistic Director Mark Gross and poets Evan Cutts and Attorious Augustin from the Rutgers-Newark MFA program. If you love poetry, or if you love jazz, you’ll love what magic unfolds when these two expressive art forms play together.
