Jazz and Poetry

I knew April was National Poetry Month, but I didn't realize it is also National Jazz Appreciation Month. Then I read about "Old as New" a program at the Norwalk Library. Jim Clark, a jazz composer/saxophonist, released a new album and asked Laurel Peterson, Norwalk's Poet Laureate, to collaborate by writing poems in response to his music.

I loved the music.I enjoyed much of the poetry. Most of all I loved the idea of combining jazz and poetry.

It was a lovely way to spend part of a Sunday afternoon.

Since I was at the library, I took out four books to catch up on both the Kinsey Millhone and V.I. Warshawski mystery series.

I need to take a closer look at all the programs at the library.
