Since the turn of the century, poets have responded to jazz in all its musical and cultural overtones. The poems here cover the range of jazz itself: from early blues to free jazz and experimental music. Among the 132 poets included are James Baldwin, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Langston Hughes, Jack Kerouac, Mina Loy, Ishmael Reed, and Sonia Sanchez. This anthology represents the broad appreciation for jazz as poetic inspiration, not only from the Beat movement but from writers across the decades and around the world.

Some good poems; some not so good poems. I did find several poems about some of my favorite artists. It was worth buying for that.

This is great stuff. I don't get into poetry much, but this is just great stuff. I am getting into Jazz as a music form, and this is increasing my love for jazz. This is one of those books you pick up and read when nothing else captures you. This will capture you. You get into this and don't want to put it down. Enjoy.

Really nice anthology, one of my favorites of the genre.
