Three-time U.S. Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky is joined by Grammy-winning pianist, composer and arranger Laurence Hobgood in a program presented as part of Dodge Poetry at NJPAC.
PoemJazz is neither poetry set to music nor merely poems recited to musical accompaniment. In this unique collaboration, a voice speaking poetry has a role like that of a horn: Speech, with its own poetic melody and rhythm, is in conversation with the melody and rhythm of the music.
The three-part Dodge Poetry at NJPAC series, presented in partnership with the Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival, continues with Oigo Cantar a América on May 27.
