The project is described as “an experiment in words and music”, and yet there’s very little left to chance in the new PoJAZZ collaboration. Over the last year, eight of the region’s top poets came together with more than a dozen of the area’s best jazz performers in various local venues for several evenings of artistic exchange.
One of those venues was The Black Door in Montpelier, and the new PoJAZZ recording Last Days – Live from the Black Door has just been released. It’s excellent.
We’ll give PoJAZZ a listen on this week’s World of Music along with other local sounds from the trio “Twist of the Wrist”; Burlington’s psychotropical band Guagua; and the new release from Adamant-based didgeridoo virtuoso Pitz Quattrone and his Earthman Band.
Discovering the world right here at home, along with the latest from Africa, Peru, Belize, Québec, and the usual international musical hot spots.
World of Music is blues, jazz, poetry, and world music every Monday on the Radiator, 3-5pm ET. Online, or at 105.9FM in Burlington, VT.
