Jazzonia: the Marriage of Poetry and Jazz
Enjoy spoken word by poets Berry and Smoove Babii atop John Coltrane and Lovie Austin selections, played by the City Love NYC band.
The Jazzonia Series is pairings of spoken word artists performing their work in tandem with selections from jazz legends performed by the City Love NYC band. This series pays homage to Langston Hughes, one of the first jazz poets, and his poem Jazzonia.
Kendolyn Walker (City Love NYC and City Love On The Radio) serves as the series curator.
