Jazzonia: The Marriage of Poetry and Jazz

This series will consist of three events beginning with a panel moderated by historian John Reddick to discuss the history of jazz and poetry leading to creation of the jazz poetry genre. The second and third events will be pairings of spoken word artists performing their work atop a live band playing selections from jazz legends.
