Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Cites poems of the past 75 years that have been inspired to varying degrees by jazz or blues music. Includes homages to or elegies for jazz musicians, poems written primarily to be read with jazz accompaniment, poems inspired by jazz clubs, poems that try to capture the spirit of a particular style of jazz or a jazz age, and those that the poets say try to emulate the rhythms of jazz music. Does not include poems that merely suggest improvisational musical phrases with syncopation or visual jaggedness, or lyrics to songs. The main listing is by poet; a cross-reference guide lists musicians and identifies the poems related to them; a chronology of poems is also included. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
