What poetry and music will you tune into to brighten your springtime?
This week, we’re contemplating the relationship between poetry and jazz, both contemporary and historical. We’ve got a retrospective profile on one of Philly’s forgotten poets who helped pave the way for other poets rising in the city, just in time for National Poetry Month. This week’s roundup picks a few jazz events as the city gets into Jazz Appreciation Month, in addition to a pair of learning circles that ought to plant the seeds for musicians and writers in the future.
We hope you find some poetry and jazz that resonate with you this month as spring has already taken off.
